Quick change beads allow anglers to change a hook link quickly and easily. There are two parts to a quick change bead, the bead itself and the inner peg.
How to use a Quick Change Bead
Thread the main line through the bead, and through the hole in the peg.
Tie a figure of eight loop knot with the peg inside the loop.
Wet the knot with water or saliva and tighten.
Cut off tail end leaving small tag.
Slide the bead over the knot and over the peg, leaving the slit in the peg exposed.
Loop a hook link over the end of the peg and into the slit. Slide the bead down to cover the slit.
Quick change beads are used with flat bed feeders and running rigs.
