I use zipties to keep the 'stuff', including bells, on the bars if the bracket is too small. The secret is to get the ziptie as tight as possible, with out breaking it. You can buy a tool just to tighten zipties, or use a fourth hand tool
, or use what you have, needlenose plies work well, to hold the buckle or the ziptie, and another pair of pliers to pull it tight. I'd say I have a 90+% success rate with this, YMMV.
The fourth hand makes it quick and easy.
And BTW, in my state, NJ, it is a legal requirement to have a bell or other warning device on your bike.
