The following chart is a general guide to selecting which size BeadSlide clasp to use for your beaded bracelet designs.  

The BeadSlide clasp was designed to accommodate various seed beads and seed bead sizes; however, this guide is to be used as just that, a guide.

Lets take the first row:  It's advising that for size 15/0 seed beads (Japanese Miyuki or Toho) should be no more than 18 beads per row if using the 18mm BeadSlide; no more than 23 beads per row if using the 24mm Beadslide and no more than 29 beads per row when using the 29mm BeadSlide.

Bead sizes vary dramatically from brand to brand. Test them by stringing beads on a needle and inserting into the tube. Ends should close without pushing against beads
