Bracelets are a pretty, and fun accessory for many women. But unless they’re bangles that you just slip on and off your wrist, getting a bracelet on by yourself can sometimes be tricky.

That little clasp can sometimes be a little slippery pest when you’re in a rush and trying to get out the door for work or some other pressing event.

However, one 44-year-old woman from Canada might just have solved the bracelet problem for women everywhere after she shared her very simple hack on her TikTok. The ensuing video clip ended up gaining nearly one million likes and 5.1 million views as a result of how fascinating it was to the public.

In her video clip, Kerrie Smart is seen looping a bobby pin through the fastening loop on one end of the bracelet. Then, she holds onto the bobby pin while using her other hand to wrap the bracelet around her wrist and fasten it. Then, once the bracelet is secured in place, she simply removes the bobby pin and manages to go about her day like normal.

Easy peasy lemon squeezy! Finally, a super-easy way to get a bracelet on by yourself.

The comments flooded in from many people everywhere who were impressed by the simple technique. One person wrote that it was a life-changer hack, while others shared that they’d just had their minds blown away by the simplicity of it all. One person even joked that single women everywhere were thanking Kerrie for her bracelet hack.

In the comments herself, Kerrie admitted that it was a trick she’s been using since she was a child, as her own mother taught her the trick when she was just 10-years-old. While it might have been around for a while, I’m sure it’s brand new to a lot of people and probably has revolutionized life for some people out there.
