KX Awl Piercing Dies

  • Quickly piercesholes in stiff material like vinyl and leather for easier snap placement. Resulting hole size is approx 2.8mm in diameter. See how it works.

    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).

    Want to cut out a hole instead of just poking?  Check out our hole punch dies.

    The following tools are REQUIRED -- also see 2nd thumbnail image:( which tool do I have?)
  • Bottom die shank: approx 3/8" diameter
    Top die shank: approx 5/16" diameter

  • Dies are industrial equipment and may have scratches, rust, oil or other cosmetic imperfections that will not hinder their function. Remove any remaining oil on dies by attaching several snaps to scrap fabric. Returns or exchanges cannot be accepted unless a defect affects function.
