I was able to open it. It took me to the 43rd post, which is basically a mini tut without pics. See a copy/paste below:

"You wrap them to the top half of the clip.

You have to do more work to get it onto the clip bc the clip is wanting to shut so you have to keep it open AND put the loops on at the same time. Its not too hard though. hth...."

"sorry i am just now responding to you...i just saw this. I sew through the middle of the clip. I tie my 3 strands of embroidery thread to the clip by going around through the center...the space that is open. Am I making sense? I always glue a strip of ribbon onto my sewing to enforce the thread. Its very secure that way. If i get time ill take some pics. "
