Other questions about "Bell"

Q: Take the bell with your left hand, and take it to near your left waist. soa natural?
A: Take the bell with your left hand, and move it near the left side of your waist.

I changed the second "take" to move because when I hear "take" I think of one of two things:
-The object was not in the person's hand but then they grabbed it. In other words, they took it.
-They're holding the object and they moved with it. Like, they walked with it, got in a car and drove with it, etc. In other words, they went to a new location while holding the object. Well, they just move it with their hands, but they don't go anywhere, I don't think of that as take.

So I think a word like "move" is better for your situation because it doesn't require the person to go to a new location.

A: We can add a bit to the original sentence to make it grammatical.

But it's still fairly awkward. We can rephrase it, of course.
