holes (like pierced ears) in stiff material such as vinyl and leather for easier snap placement. Needle is approx 2.8mm in diameter. Newer model has a rubber tip, not shown in photo.
Works best with sturdy, thick, and dense material with some stiffness, such as vinyl for key fobs or leather. Not recommended with stretchy, thin, or delicate fabric as the awl will cause such material to stretch out. If working with thinner material, hold fabric taut around bottom die, then press (see 3rd thumbnail image).
