I used the barrel of a ball point pen, tapered at one end and open at the other. Roll the O-ring onto the tapered end, insert the two end segments of the UCR -- i.e., the bury's fixed eye and the end of the inner 'static' section -- inside the pen, then roll the O-ring along the barrel onto the UCR. You can then slide or roll the ring to the proper position.
Hope that helps!
Anyone tried whipping the constrictor end with a bit of fishing line instead of an o-ring?
Seems it would be more durable than an o-ring, stretchy enough, and nearly non-existent from a weight perspective.
Might even need as little as a single wrap around the constrictor.

I set up a quick test hang in my Northern VA back yard to check out the O-ring idea. Worked like a charm!
I'd gotten the rings at the local Home Depot -- Danco #60, 1/8" I.D., 1/16" thick. Costs about $2 for a pack of 10, IIRC.
As luck would have it, I need to stop at Home Depot this weekend. I'll pick me up a set. Thanks, Frawg.
