      Chris asks the ABA

      “I just mounted a wonderful farm bell in my yard but it’s not ringing as easily as I thought it would. I’ve attached a rope to it and it will ring once but then it doesn’t swing back to its original position for a second ring Any helpful tips would be appreciated. Thank you.”

      If you can help Chris, please respond with your suggestions. Thanks

      Try turning the bell on its yoke where it will lean opposite where it sits on the cradle You can loosen the nut and turn the bell left or right. Sounds like your bell is tilting forward too much.
