Using Snap Pliers

Snap sets consist of two parts, male and female. The stud being male, socket being female. Both stud and socket use a cap (that is why there are two cap pieces to every snap set).

The order you apply each (ie whether you apply socket or stud) is up to you.

Using the point of the cap or an awl, place a small hole in your fabric. Place the sharp prong of the cap piece through the hole.

Position the cap piece and place fabric in pliers.

Position socket or stud piece.

Apply pressure to secure together (enough pressure to crimp the cap's prong flat).

Repeat with other snap piece (stud or socket).

Completed snap.....!

To change snap size, use enclosed screwdriver to replace cap die.
