Sailrite® SnapRite® System Complete Kit
The Sailrite® SnapRite® System Complete Kit 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. This Complete Kit comes with all the tools you need (except snap fasteners) to start installing snaps.
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 the 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.
SnapRite System Complete Kit includes a Professional Rivet Tool. Made from cast aluminum, this rivet tool is lightweight and works great with the SnapRite Dies. All components come in a foam-lined carrying case for convenient storage.
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.
