I have the legs connected at the knees by a small ring, the kind you find in keyrings. That way the legs are always closed and they don't open when I'm taking the figure from the case and sitting her on the stand, etcetera, which would be very "unlady" like. Of course it's very easy to separate them by unhooking (is that the right word?) one of the legs for dressing and packing.
