On some horns, the third valve slide is too close to the bell to allow a JoyKey to slide past. In this case, you can shorten one of the legs and insert the cut off piece into the receiver. This allows you to firstly insert the longer leg holding the slide on angle. Once in far enough, you lower the shortened leg into the other receiver.
