The invention of the Snap Plus tool kit allows customers to easily install snaps on different materials. And it provides a variety of components to meet the needs of various sizes.
Before installation, please prepare the relevant tool components and tower, wooden or rubber hammer, as shown in the sliding picture.
We used snaps with a size of 14 / 9mm prong set in the demonstration, therefore, we selected the components related to the hole panel, and assembled the upper and lower dies as a set of tool.
Please insert the Upper / Lower Dies into the upper mold panel and the lower mold base respectively. Especially when placing the lower mold on the lower base holder, the first step is to insert the mold head ( Step 1 ) into the holder in a downwardly inclined direction ( Step 2 ).
Note : If the die is too tight when placed, use a hammer to push the die into the mold holder.
Similar to the previous insertion method, please perform steps 1 and 2 in the order shown. Push the pin forward with your fingers to move the die out of the holder position.
Note : Since the upper die is subjected to a large punching force. In order to prevent the upper mold from accidentally loosening and falling during the working process. Hence, its design is relatively tight. When disassembling, you will exert more force to push the upper die out.
First, pierce the prong into the fabric with your fingers, and then place it on the bottom mold to prepare for the next operation.
Tip : Regarding the best allowable length of the prong, about 40% of the length after penetration can remain on the surface of the fabric. If the measured figure is significantly lower than suggested value, the Socket or Duo Stud may easily loosen from the fabric.
Slide the hole panel through the vertical stand onto the surface of the base. After that, please place the stud and socket assembly in the position of the panel hole.
Note : Make sure that the socket in the "Eight" gap is facing down. Do not fasten it on the reverse side, otherwise, the prong legs will be completely reversed and cannot be successfully gripped.
Tapping the front end of the dot on the top panel with a Rubber or Wooden Mallets. All related parts can be assembled together.
Attention : This tool set is designed for use with our Colorsnaps products. For best results, we do not recommend using third-party snap products to fasten through Snap Plus.
