The perfect tool for a specific job.


I haven't used this yet, but have had the need for just sort of a tool. I fabricated something of a make do, and even considered having a machinist make a tip for my rivet gun that would reach inside the stud. That this attachment holds the rivet and the stud should prevent lots of lost hardware when working over the water. Well made, and although a little pricey, it is not nearly as expensive as some of the dies on other tools. Like they say, when you need a hammer, a screwdriver just won't do.

Expensive But Valuable Tool


Very useful tool for applying snaps in a marine environment. I used this tool to replace the snaps on the stainless steel window frame of my Sea Ray cruiser and it would have been much more difficult to set the snaps to the vertical attachment surface without this tool. It held the snap and rivet securely in place while I moved them into position on the frame. The tool also screwed onto my rivet tool perfectly and allowed for a neat, tight fit to the frame, although it was still difficult to "pop" a stainless steel rivet. The tool is quite expensive for what it is, so unless you have a lot of snaps to install the benefit might not be worth the cost.
