Adjust Your Hinged Huggies ClaspUpdated 4 months ago

If you're having trouble with the fit of your hinge huggie earrings – whether they're too loose or too tight – adjusting their clasp might be just what you need. This guide provides step-by-step instructions and includes a helpful video tutorial to assist you in safely and effectively adjusting your earring clasps.

Understanding Hinged Huggie Earring Clasps

Hinged huggie earrings feature a unique clasp mechanism that allows them to open and close securely around your earlobes. Sometimes, these clasps may require slight adjustments to ensure a comfortable and secure fit. 

Steps to Adjust the Clasp

Gather Necessary Tools: You'll need a small, flat surface to work on and a pair of fine-pointed tweezers or needle-nose pliers.

Identify the Adjustment Point: Locate the hinge and the clasp part of your earring. This is usually where the earring opens and closes.

Adjusting: To tighten the clasp, gently bend the post of the earring inward very slightly. To loosen the clasp, carefully bend the post outward

Test the Adjustment: After adjusting, try wearing the earring to ensure it fits comfortably and securely. If it's still not quite right, repeat the adjustment process with minor tweaks.
