Captive Bead Ring Opening & Closing Tools Insert ring opening pliers into the captive bead ring.

Step 1: Gather all the tools you need for the job. Here's a list the tools in the picture above, for easy reference. These tools can help you insert and remove captive beads from their rings:

(Only the 1st 3 items above will be needed when opening a captive bead ring, but it's best to have all tools listed handy since both opening and closing pliers may be needed in the same session. Click any of the names above to shop for that type of tool, or visit our Piercing Supplies section.)

Step 2: Slide the captive bead ring over the tips of your ring opening pliers so that the ring rests on the grooves in the nose of the pliers. Gently squeeze the handles together until the captive ring is secure and not moving around.


Use your ball grabber tool to grasp the captive bead while the ring is over the opening pliers and held securely in place.

Step 3: Expand the teeth of the ball grabber tool so that they grab hold of the captive bead. As you still gently squeeze on the ring opening pliers, slowly apply pressure with the ball grabber tool until the ball becomes loose and falls out. Since the ball grabber is holding the ball, you don't have to worry about losing the ball.

Note: Do not squeeze too hard with the ring opening pliers. This will distort your ring. Only a small amount of pressure is needed to release the ball.

Step 4: At this stage, the ball is out of the ring, as shown above. Now, release the pressure on the pliers and hold the captive ring so it doesn't fall as you remove the pliers.

As you see in the image above, the captive ring retains its shape if you apply minimal pressure when removing the ball.
