Sailrite SnapRite® Twist Lock Die Kit is a uniquely designed system that installs Twist Lock fasteners to canvas using a standard rivet tool. The SnapRite Twist Lock Die kit makes installing twist lock fasteners quick and easy. Included in the kit is the Spin Cut tool and a cutting block, so a hole can easily be precut in the fabric without needing a hard surface or a mallet. With this system, the entire installation of Twist Lock fasteners can be done without a workbench, making it ideal for use on a boat.
Install twist lock fasteners on your boat for accurate positioning. The key to this system is the use of a SnapRite Mandrel and using snap components that have a hole down the center. The SnapRite Twist Lock Die Kit requires the use of SnapRite Buttons. This system works with any standard rivet tool; so buying a new tool is unnecessary if you already have one.
SnapRite Twist Lock Die Kit Instructions:
Place fastener stud on fabric and mark the desired location.
Using the cutting block as a backer, drill holes in the marked location.
Depress the rivet tool levers and screw in the button die into the nose piece.
Place a mandrel through the hole in the Twist Lock Die.
Line up the button through the bottom so the barrel protrudes through the top of the Twist Lock Stud.
Guide the mandrel through the button into the rivet gun.
Be sure the mandrel is flush with the bottom on the Twist Lock Die.
Use the tool to rivet the button.
Repeat for the second button.

Note: The SnapRite Twist Lock Die Kit requires use of SnapRite Buttons. We recommend using buttons with 11/64″ rivet barrels for two thin layers of fabric assemblies, and 1/4″ barrels for three to four layers. Twist Lock Fastener Studs are nickel-plated brass, so the buttons should be as well.
