      I have a 24″ hanging bronze bell, and wonder if anyone knows how to tie the rope to hang it correctly. Thanks, Robert

      Do you have a picture? The style of the crown is critical to the mounting. Fulton Bells had a crown that was flat and lent to mounting flush to the yoke. Most British bellhs hada crown that required multiploe “U” Bolts to mount to a wooden yoke a la Liberty Bell.

      This is how I have suspended a few of my bells of this type. I use 2 long shackles and hang a chain from my ceiling.

      If you want it to rock on an A frame, you will need to make a wooden yoke and mount it similar to the Liberty Bell. If you want it to hang from a chain, then the process listed above is the simplest.
