Sailrite® SnapRite® Surface Mount Stud Die is a uniquely designed die that screws into the end of a standard rivet tool to quickly install stud fasteners to a hard surface. The die holds the rivet and stud in place so parts are not loose or falling off during installation, and the installation results in a tight fitting stud!

The SnapRite Surface Mount Stud Die offers a better alternative to screw-in studs with a quicker installation process and a lower stud profile. Use to install studs to fiberglass, stainless steel or aluminum tubing, steel frame, galvanized pipe, and other hard materials that can be riveted.

  1. Screw die into rivet tool.
  2. Insert blind rivet (see rivet specifications).
  3. Press stud into place inside die.
  4. Rivet stud to surface using pre-drilled 1/8" hole.

Use with aluminum or stainless steel blind rivets (aka pop rivets or open end rivets). The length of the rivet must be able to accommodate the thickness of the surface. Using an open end rivet will not create a watertight seal.

When a watertight seal is necessary, use a sealing rivet (closed end rivet) to seal off the hole in the center of the stud. For extra waterproof protection, use a closed end rivet with a watertight gasket and an adhesive backed foam rubber gasket on the surface. The closed end rivet seals the hole in the center of the snap while the foam rubber gasket seals the stud base.

The SnapRite Surface Mount Stud Die is proudly made in the USA.

Note: This die is designed and tested for use with the Blind Rivet for SnapRite®, available through Sailrite, and DOT® studs. Other rivets and studs may not work as well with the SnapRite® Surface Mount Stud Die.

Expensive But Valuable Tool

by

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.

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.
