How to Ring a Mission Bell
Many mission bells are secured at the top such that they don't swing. In order to ring such a bell, a bell rope is attached to the clapper as with the bell at the left.
The bell rope tugs the clapper to one side, ringing the bell. There is usually a pulley involved to re-route the rope down to the mission.
Here are some mission bells from our inventory.
