Details

Sailrite® Snap Fastener Deluxe Installation Tool is a two-piece, heavy-duty setting tool for snap fasteners. The metal anvil has two sides, one for setting buttons and the other for eyelets. This tool can be used without the base to set rivets. The Snap Fastener Deluxe Installation Tool is heat treated, making it robust enough to set stainless steel snaps.

Use of a 1/8" hole punch (sold separately) is recommended to create a hole in the fabric for the snap barrel before setting. An awl may also be used in lighter fabrics to force an opening in the fabric weave for the snap barrel.

Works Well

I did not want to spend a lot of money on the "professional" snap tool, so purchased this for attaching a few snaps to sunbrella fabric. The tool is very easy to use, and I would recommend this for a project with a small amount of snaps. Unfortunately, I did not realize I should buy the hold puncher as well, because as the videos show, an awl does not work. So invest in the punch tool as well to make the job a lot easier

Nice to have great tools.

I have been sewing canvas and sail projects for several years. I usually only make things for my personal cars, boats, furniture, Etc. However, a friend came to me a couple of days ago and asked me to make a cover for his companionway on his sailboat. Not a complicated project, but it had many snaps. I had a snap replacement kit, you know the kind with the little silver sliding snap pounder (bender). Well, when I started to set the snap for this cover, I was ruining two for every acceptable one I did. This new tool is awesome. I have set 30+ snaps this past weekend and only ruined one (my screw up!) Make sure to use it on a very solid surface.
It also works great for setting the rivets in the permalock 1/4 turn fasteners!
Great tool, I should have bought one a long time ago.

Great tool
