A toggle clasp consists of two components--a ring and a pin--that attach to opposite ends of a bracelet to close it around your wrist. An extender for a toggle clasp allows you to enlarge the bracelet. The extender is a series of links with a toggle clasp pin on one end. They can be found at beading and jewellery-making supply stores and come in different sizes and metal types so you can match the extender with the toggle clasp on your bracelet.
