If the only remaining problem with large clappers was the 
inconvenience of them ending up on the wrong side of the bell after 
being rung up, it would not be a major issue.  

It would open up a new market for cable operated gadgets which turn 
over the clapper, all done from the safety and comfort of the 
ringing room.
