    • Dies to safely and quickly remove plastic snaps. NOT compatible with K1 / K2 / K3 basic pliers.
    • Hand awl to pierce holes in your fabric for snap placement.
    • Awl dies serve the same function as the hand awl (to pierce holes) but allow the press to do most of the work.
    • If you'll be setting your snaps in vinyl or leather, hole punching dies will make it easier. NOT compatible with K1 / K2 / K3 basic pliers.


    Optional: Leave a note in the Order Notes box at checkout requesting that your order be reviewed for completeness. We'll contact you if anything appears to be missing or if your tools aren't compatible with your fasteners.
