Default Question toogle headband

I did a few last night and they are very cute but my big concern it's about safety, the mini toogles seem to slide of the 3/8 ribbon very easily, and with a little bit of difficulty of the 7/8 but someone can still pull the ribbon out.
This is how I do my toggle HB. I press the bottom thingy of the toggle up and slide the ribbon through the hole and that's it. Is that the way to do it? Once the ribbon is in the toogle should I knot the ends?
Also, I wore one for a while and it stayed in my hair but when I looked in the mirror the toggle was under my ear.
Any advice will be appreciated.

Maybe just make it a tad tighter on your head. As far as sliding off; I haven't used on 3/8" ribbon, I'd probably knot that one. I haven't had a problem with 7/8" I do however recommend that they not be worn by babies and toddlers when I sell them because the little bean toggle is perfect for choking. Of course, people still do (I let my 2 year old daughter wear them), but the warning is necessary, and supervision a must.

I knot the ends for several reasons...

#1 I don't have a LLC company and if a kid chokes I can get sued and lose a lot!

#2 If the ribbon slips out of the toggle when my customer is styling their hair it will be annoying to them and they might stop buying them.

#3 If the toggle gets lost in public because it came off the ribbon then I would have both an annoyed customer and it could possibly be found by a kid...who could choke.

#4 I think they look more "finished" with a knot at the ends

My main concern was about a small child chocking.
