Sailrite® SnapRite® System is a unique new snap fastener system created by Matt Grant (Sailrite owner). The SnapRite System features a set of four dies that work with a standard rivet gun to install button, socket, stud and eyelet snap fastener components with more ease, speed and precision than ever before.
The color-coded dies work in pairs to install snap components on site 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 System requires use of SnapRite Buttons and gypsy studs but installs all other standard snap components in a Ligne 24 size (most common size).
The SnapRite Dies work with any standard rivet gun, so buying a new rivet tool is unnecessary if you already have one. Dies screw into the rivet gun’s nosepiece and must be used with a SnapRite Mandrel (included). Position fasteners, punch the mandrel through the fabric assembly, and rivet the fasteners in place.
How the SnapRite® System Works
The SnapRite Button Die and snap component are installed on the rivet gun’s nosepiece. The mating snap component is placed on the SnapRite Socket Die and a mandrel put through the center hole of the die. The rivet tool grabs onto the mandrel that has been inserted through the fabric, pulling the two SnapRite dies together and flaring the barrel of the button to create a tightly installed snap fastener.

Demonstration of SnapRite System
Matt Grant shows a Sailrite employee how to use the SnapRite System to install a tool bag onto a work bench.
A little in the pricey side, but we’ll worth the purchase! I’ve always used the hammer die set with snaps and could never get a good press connection. With this die set and mandrels you get perfect compression of the snaps and a rigid finished snap. I used this set to put snaps in sunbrella canvass.
This kit is well designed and the quality of the product allowed me to use it from day one. This kit makes life so much easier, especially when you never have attached snaps to fabric before and didn't know exactly the exact location of snaps. I would highly recommend this kit.
Where have you been all my life?
Amazing system for field repairs when it’s logistically difficult to get your work piece on a table or other surface to set traditional snap sets.
The best thing I brought in a long time, so easy to use with a professional finish
SnapRite system a good alternative
Was not familiar with this snap system but once I grasped how it works, got great results on a boat cover. Mandrel threads did not fit my "MATCO" rivet gun but found another gun that worked. It's a good alternative to the standard snap-press system.
Seems well made. Looking forward to putting it to use soon.
Arrived on time.
Genius design, even better customer service. Anyone doing canvas, diy or professional, would do well to add this tool to their arsenal.
