Hi John! I've been searching through reviews of this product and all of them talk about how hard it is attach 100+ strands of crystals.
One review states, "You have to install each one of the line of crystals on a thin bar".
I also found the manual at homedepot.com/catalog/pdfImages/47/474c19fd-4cfc-4931-b954-3a45875af1ae.pdf
which has a fairly good diagram on page 3 for how to install part 6 the crystals.
