How to put on a bracelet?

To remove a spring bar, you usually need to push one of its ends with a sharp specialized tool.

Tiny trenches are performed in a bracelet so as to insert the tool and grab the bar.

Now here is one technique: first, insert one end of the spring bar into the lug's hole.

Then, use the the spring bar tool (see on the right, grey, a bit out of focus) to compress the bar to be able to attach the bracelet.
