These pliers are a must in my opinion--unless you have a snap press, or unlimited patience for ruining snaps and smashing your fingers. :0]
These pliers are awesome once you have some practice. If you read online reviews there are lots of people complaining about the tool, but most likely it is user inexperience and errors. But with a few practice runs, and some tips (see blog post links below) you will find them very easy and fast to install.
The kit is a great value because the pliers work for several different sizes of snaps, as well as eyelets. These pliers can be used for the following METAL snaps (plastic snaps require their own special tool):
• Open snaps in sizes 15, 16, 115 & 116
• Decorative snaps in sizes 17, 29, 25 & 105
• Jumbo snaps in sizes 24 & 30
• Eyelets in size 104
The kit also comes with a few snaps and eyelets to get you started! These are perfect for practicing until you have technique perfected.
Accessories shown in first photo are for demonstration only.
These work perfectly with these fantastic jumbo snaps:
