i had a redtail and a harris with these and never lost them. once the are on the dont come off. when you tidy them up the look nicer i think. most people just stick a cable tie on the anclets but i prefer the look of these.

Stopped using leather ones a long time ago! The leather goes slack and then the bell bounces on the back toe. Use a cable tie and put the bell straight off the close rings never goes slack and very easy to do you normally don't even have to cast the bird.
