Quick use of some pliers to bend into shape, I hit it with a file a few times, and then a good going over with some sand cloth to smooth it out. (sand cloth is a wet / dry plumbers sand paper)
Step 3: Give It a Hang
Honestly, I dig the crap out of it and I've been wearing it over a week with not a concern. ;)
