KX Dies to Cut Holes

Quickly cuts out a hole in your fabric or vinyl for easy snap, rivet, or grommet placement.  Both a top cutting die piece and a bottom piece are needed. Our 17mm bottom die accommodates top cutting dies up to 17mm, so you can use the same bottom die for all smaller sizes.

  • For snaps & rivets, use the 2.5mm die.
  • For grommets:
    • Use the same cutting die size as the grommet if your material has no stretch/give and will not unravel/fray at the cut (ie. leather, card stock).
    • If any of the above conditions apply, a cutting die smaller than the grommet size is recommended since the resulting hole will expand. Size down according to the amount of expansion.

Notes:

  • Cuts best on thicker material with compression (like vinyl); thin material may not achieve completely clean cuts. 
  • Larger holes require much more pressure to cut than smaller holes.
  • Due to the mechanics of hole punching, the dies will wear down with continued use and will need to be replaced periodically, particularly the bottom die. Placing a small cutting mat or piece of leather on the bottom die may provide a cushion for the surface to prolong the lifespan.
  • As with all punch dies, the cut pieces of fabric will collect in the top die (similar to how cut pieces of paper will collect in a paper hole punch) and will need to be cleaned out periodically.
  • Hole cutting dies vs awl piercing dies
