Officer Dangle Question

Hey all - quick question. How do you attach your officer dangles to your chapter guard? I thought that you just string the dangle onto the chain, but I have also heard of people "securing" them so that if the chain breaks, you don't lose the dangles.

Thanks!

I strung the dangles onto the chain (as you describe), but if the links of the chain were large enough, you could attach the dangle to one of the links in the middle.

The badge & guard are difficult enough to put on straight -- not sure if having the dangles in a set place would help or hurt!

Each one of my dangles are hooked through a link in my guard... if that makes sense!

What do you mean by fraternity men getting to have Position 'pieces'. I thought officer dangles were a sort of widely accepted thing amongst everybody. I have seen several different GLOS that had officer dangles attached to their badge and guard. I guess it just depends on the organization or the chapter. If you want a gavel denoting that you were a President then I dont see who would really stop you if you were so inclined. Or am I way off and you were going along the lines of actual military type medals denoting position or what have you.
