LEVELS OF SECURITY

DOT has been trusted for over 80 years as the #1 choice in fasteners by the world’s leading marine and industrial product manufacturers. Whether you’re looking for moderate to extreme peel strength, DOT has a fastener that will add the finishing touch to your project. When the height of the fastener above your application is a concern, DOT fasteners are available in low to high profiles. Low profile is almost flush with the application (perfect for flooring and walkways), and high profile is easy to grasp but may also be high enough to stub your toe or snag rope, webbing or something else in passing.


INSTALLATION METHODS

Installation Methods

DOT snap fasteners require the use of additional tools and supplies in order to install them on your canvas project. Some fastener sets require items you may already have in your toolbox or around the house. Other sets will require specialty installation tools and kits. Knowing what additional tools are needed for installation might help you decide whether a certain fastener type is right for your project and budget. We’ve created a helpful chart detailing all our DOT brand fasteners and the tools and supplies required for installation.
