    Sorry to say, but cheap bells with the removable rubber bottom are easy to unbolt. Just replace the stock bolt with a longer one from the hardware store + ample washer + rubber bottom + plates.

    I'd never do that. First, it's unsafe. Second, it's ugly. And third, there is no need to. Manipulate volume, then move up in quarter-pood or half-pood increments.

    Maybe you can tell us why you feel a need to attach weights?

    I've been thinking about the same problem. I have 2 10-kg, 1 16-kg and 1 24-kg bell and I need to increase the weights differently depending on the exercise: grip, wrist, c&p, snatches, swings etc. I've been tying on small-diameter db plates to the KB's flat base with strong cloth tape folded into multiple-ply and foam at any sharp edges. Only problem is that the KBs then can't be used with confidence for snatches as the attachments tend to work loose and dangle from the KB. But they are quite serviceable for almost all other drills. However, it's best to check the integrity of the bindings every now and then.

    Chains as per the bodybuilding.com site (Gunny's post) are probably the best option esp. if one doesn't want to tamper with the KB's body to make it adjustable. Must try it.

    Personally I use the US Kettlebells that adjust in very small increments. I have a pair of them I've had for 10 years and really don't see that I'll ever need anything else.
