Leaving Jewelry Frustration Behind Is A Cinch Cinch Clasp offers you the most valuable piece of jewelry you will ever own. We have all struggled with putting on or taking off necklaces, bracelets and or anklets. Those little clasps can be so hard to put on and take off. If you have longer nails or arthritis, these little clasps can be next to impossible to maneuver. Cinch Clasp lets you put on or take off any necklace, chain, bracelet in two seconds or less every time. Cinch Clasp is very secure and can handle multiple chains, so you can put on or take off all at the same time. Cinch Clasp would make a great gift to accompany a piece of jewelry you are giving someone dear to you or just on its own for someone who already has a lot of jewelry. Cinch Clasp comes in three different sizes and offers many different finishes. The Cinch Clasp was invented by local resident,
