Creative hacks to prevent wind chimes from being rude

Yesterday, my wind chime was so loud because of the wind. I usually just take it down when it becomes too loud especially, at night, As I don’t want to annoy my neighbors, while being asleep But, I thought why every time I had to take it down so, I searched online for hacks and ideas to find a way to keep it quiet or to stop it from working when I need to. One of the ideas was wrapping a sock around the tubes and securing it with a cloth pin when I tried that, the sound was too low because of the wind but I think in the normal days, this is enough to stop it from working. One of the ideas that I liked the most was putting a rubber band on the top of the tube and you can just pull it down when you want the wind chime to stop. It was my favorite one, and that what I will keep doing when I want to stop my wind chime. I found a lot of ideas that you can try anytime your wind chime becomes noisy to reduce its sound.

  •  You can wrap the striker not the tubes with electrical tape
