Finish your piece to desired length. Weave back down and around in a figure 8 pattern and exit your needle through the horizontal bead second from the top.
Go through the top loop of the slide bar clasp, and back into the second horizontal bead.
Turn down into the next vertical bead, then exit the third horizontal bead from the top.
Go through the center loop of the slide bar clasp, and back into the third horizontal bead.
Turn down into the next vertical bead, then exit the fourth horizontal bead from the top.
Go through the bottom loop of the slide bar clasp, and back into the fourth horizontal bead.
Pass back through, and reinforce the existing thread paths.
Continue weaving through the beads in a figure 8 pattern several times. This will secure your thread.
Cut your thread. Clean up the ends of your thread, using a Perfect End Thread Burner. Burn, or melt, the end of your thread until the end is no longer visible.
Repeat steps 1 through 9 for the second side of your clasp.
Congratulations, you have added a tube bar clasp to a Right Angle Weave design!
