By New England Yankee VINE VOICE on July 30, 2014
I've looked at every option I could find for a single tool that would accomodate both snaps and grommets, was well-built, was reasonably portable (or reasonably luggable), had good throat depth, and had a wide variety of dies available.

There is no single solution that satisfies all of these! The Press-n-Snap is the best compromise for me. It completely satisifies the well-built criteria. It is cast aluminum, the casting is clean and has good depth and reinforcement to stress areas. It is strong and tolerances appear to be held to a good standard. The throat is as deep as many bench tools. It has leverage of the same type that vice-grips have. Many bench tools have no leverage beyond a long handle, and the vice grip approach lets you adjust both leverage and the fastener closure limit at the same mechanical point. You cannot do that with most other tools. The Press-n-Snap will self-pierce a ligne 24 snap through 8 layers of Sunbrella as easily as 2. As a hand tool, it is portable, of course. There is a huge variety of dies available, but the primary one I would use that is not included in a typical "complete set" sale is the #2 grommet die set. #1 grommet dies are included, but #2 is the most common size used.

There are two compromises for me. The first is that I wound up with two different tools for snaps and small grommets vs. large grommets (talking up to #20 here). While dies for the small stuff are available for the large bench grommet machine, it is not a convenient tool to use for that purpose and the dies are a LOT more expensive. The second is the size of the Press-n-Snap. It is not a small hand tool, and I have small hands. It is a two-handed proposition for me. I was concerned enough about that to put off the purchase for a long time.

I've read a lot of reviews where people are whining about the price of this tool -- if you don't like it, just buy the anvil and setter from Tandy for $4.00 and stop complaining. (Don't want to hear any whining when you end up having to redo your snaps 4 or 5 times with the tandy garbage either...)

This tool works great if you know what you're doing. I'm going to explain how to use it for folks that can't seem to understand how the tool works...

1. You put your snap parts into the dies on the tool (it will be obvious which parts go where) and they will be held on by the tool.

2. Punch a hole through the material you're installing the snap on...the hole should only be just big enough for the post to go through. If you're installing onto Nylon, sear the edges of the hole you made so it doesn't fray...

3. Adjust the jaws of the tool with the large screw at the bottom of the handle so that you have resistance from about 1.5" to 2" from being fully closed.

4. Squeeze the jaws completely closed, TIGHTLY.

5. Without letting the tension on the handles out completely, open up the jaws a bit and then screw the screw down again so that you are about 1.5" to 2" away from being completely closed again, just as in step 3...

6. Repeat step 4 again.

Continue steps 3 and 4 until the snap post is rolled over nicely.

The steps are the same for caps and for the sockets.

You're welcome. :)

I bought this to install snaps in my boat carpet. The product works perfectly and makes installing the snaps a breeze. If fact, I would not want to try installing snaps without a tool like this. However, it is very expensive and someone should start making cheaper versions.

After struggling with those dreadful craft store pliers for years and ruining lots of snap sets I have finally found the best tool for setting snaps in leather. I am not a professional and if I were I would use the standard stationary snap setter, but this is a portable tool that makes a perfect snap every time. It is a bit hard on my arthritic overused right hand, but I don't mind a bit because the results are perfect. Be sure to get the correct dies for the snap size you are using! It comes with the dies for Line 24 snaps which are bigger than the Line 20 which are more readily available in craft stores. I found the best snaps online and at Home Depot next to the grommets and rivets.

OH MY GOSH!!! We've had our cabin cruiser a little over 8 years and it was time to replace the boat carpet, top deck and inside. Unbeknownst to me my husband had the cheap snap tool he was trying to use to install the snaps onto the carpet with and I was like R U crazy risking that with $1500 worth of carpet? I said there's got to be a better way so I checked on utube and a dude was doing a demo with this tool so we went to our "go to" site first Amazon and they had it, best price too by $5-10. Got it in no time and he got all that carpet done in about 35 minutes! IMPORTANT NOTE: order the additional parts. I forget what they're called but get the Complete kit and that's what comes with it.

This tool is the best for installing snaps. It applies compression perfectly square to the snap as opposed to the pliers type installation tools out there. Yes it was expensive (honestly not sure why) but it seems durable enough.
