Gremlin Bell Location

I just received my Gremlin Bell and have two questions.
1) Most articles I have read state to hang it close to the ground. Where did you hang the bell on the bike?
2) How did you hang it? Zip tie or something else.

Thanks....Vic

I have mine hanging from the bottom rung of my engine gaurd, one can hang it from their foot peg just fine and yes use a zip tie.

I have mine hanging on the brake pedal guard. I did not need a zip tie for it as I just used the loop and it is very secure.

Mine is on the heat shield on the exhaust. I used a split ring (key ring) to attach it. I can also hear mine at slow speed.

Didn't get mine yet but I'm liking the break pedal guard idea. Every time you brake it gets rung...

I found some old shower curtain clips and hung it off the engine guard.I keep hitting it when I turn hard but it flips up out of the way and gives those gremlins a h*ll of a flip.
