    When you buy the bands buy the tool to put them on with. Seems that each band maker has their own tool and they're all a little different.

    You don't need a tool to put the band on the back of a rosette.

    Oh, here we have to put them on all the birds used at a field trial, or birds we use for training. They come already closed. Need a tool to open them and close them. Using pliers gets pretty old.
