Instructions

Tip: For best results, post of rivet must pass through all layers of the material with approximately 2 mm of post showing on back side. This will allow for a proper fit once cap is applied.

  1. Before starting your project, test on material matching your project to make sure application is appropriate for intended use. Work on a firm protected surface.
  2. Mark position of rivet on project. TIP: for thick multiple layers, mark both sides as you may have to punch from opposite side to complete the hole.
  3. Position cutting end of punching tool over mark. Tap tool firmly with mallet to punch hole in fabric. Use a hammer or awl if material is too thick to punch. Hole should only be large enough for post to pass through.
  4. Insert post of rivet through hole from right to wrong side.
  5. Place cap over post and snap into place. Cap will be loose until hammered.
  6. Center rivet on concave side of anvil; place concave end of setting tool over cap. Holding setting tool straight and firmly at base, gently hammer the two caps together.

Small parts. Keep away from children.
