Snap Fastener Installation Tool is a small, two piece setting tool for snap fasteners. The metal anvil has two sides, one for setting buttons and the other for eyelets. This tool can also be used without the base for setting rivets. Great for setting nickel-plated brass snaps and Common Sense button-back screw studs. Not recommended for use with stainless steel fasteners.
Use of a 1/8″ hole punch is recommended to create a hole in the fabric for the snap barrel before setting. An awl may also be used in lighter fabrics to force an opening in the fabric weave for the snap barrel.
