Installing a Juba (tongue) connector: 7 Step Illustrated Guide
Rubber bitport (also referred to as a jaw port) is a $2 shaped rubber that is attached to your pony's teeth. The aim is to keep the ponies tongues down and to avoid that he gets his tongues over his teeth. At the bottom is a step-by-step instruction with pictures showing how to fix it to a plain rubber bite (in this video I use a flat muzzle rubber bridle).
Well, now that you have a general notion of how the port is connected to the bit, let's get started: Place the bit port so that the long part (the part that sits on the tip of the pony's tongue) points away from the bit. Drag the bit port against the bit.
You have scored the side of the bit port that you oriented in the preceding one. Insert the mouth piece of the bit into this slot. The side of the chisel opening with the two openings (bottom) should now be under the nose piece. Other side of the bit port (above) should be above the bit as shown below.
Below is a close-up of the chisel opening against the chisel tip. Note that the side of the bit port with bores is below the bit. Push the chisel nose piece tightly into the rubber chisel opening notch. Squeeze it so tightly that the small "arms" of the chisel opening wind themselves around the chisel mouth as shown in the photograph below.
Your hands should be on the top of the bit, while the side of the bit opening should be with the two bores on the bottom of the bit. Drag the long part of the bit port over the bit and through the first port of the bit (which should be under the bit).
As I do, I keep the bit port with my right hands against the bit, and keep the port of the bit port with my right hands. Then, with my right thumbs, I slide the part of the switch over the teeth and into the opening. After you have pushed the part of the switch partially through the opposite opening, simply slide the remainder of the part of the switch through - this should be simple.
Once you have fully drawn it through, there is a small chisel opening (the rear end of the lower part) that should engage in a slot at the end of the spring part nearest the chisel-nozzle. If you put it in your pony's mouth, you want the shallow part to point upwards (to the top of your pony's mouth).
On the other side there is a gentle downward bend to keep the ponies tongues down (the picture above shows this). Below the picture shows the bitport with the top side up ( "the side of the bitport you see on the picture below is the side you want to have turned towards the top of your pony).
Doover Saddlery is selling rubber drillings. You' ll probably be paying more for the shipment than the port itself, so you may be better off shopping at a retailer's store. Hopefully you should now be able to mount a reed port to your bangs. It is most problematic to fix with bigger bit sizes (e.g. the rubber strap used in this example).
When you have a little with a slimmer nozzle (e.g. some chisels), you should have no trouble.
