The SnapRite System is a unique new snap fastener system created by Matt Grant (Sailrite owner). The SnapRite System features a set of four dies that work with a standard rivet gun to install button, socket, stud, and eyelet snap fastener components with more ease, speed, and precision than ever before.
The Complete Kit comes with all the tools you need (except snap fasteners) to start installing snaps.
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 down the center. The SnapRite System requires use of SnapRite Buttons and gypsy studs but installs all other standard snap components in a Ligne 24 size (most common size).
The SnapRite Dies work with any standard rivet gun, so buying a new rivet tool is unnecessary if you already have one. 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.
