A: Hello! Thank you for your inquiry. It wouldn’t be difficult for you to alter the Orbiter if you wished. The metal hanging chain and the plastic chains are attached via an o-ring, and that can be opened using two pliers. You could remove the metal chain, and either hang the toy using one of the plastic chains, or you could hang it with a leather strip, paulie rope, or some other cordage of your choice. Please let us know if you have further questions.
