Sailrite introduces new snap fastener

May 1st, 2013 / By: / Hardware & Findings

Sailrite’s unique new SnapRite System Complete Kit snap-fastener system features a set of four dies that work with any standard rivet gun to install button, socket, stud and eyelet snap fastener components with improved ease, speed and precision. The Complete Kit comes with all needed tools (except snap fasteners).

The color-coded dies work in pairs to install snap components on site for accurate positioning. The key to this system is the use of a SnapRite mandrel and using snap components that have a hole in the center. The SnapRite System requires use of SnapRite buttons and gypsy studs, but installs all other standard snap components in the most common Ligne 24 size. Dies screw into the rivet gun’s nosepiece and must be used with a SnapRite Mandrel (included). Position fasteners, punch the mandrel through the fabric assembly, and rivet the fasteners in place.
