Answer This Question

A:  That would depend on the size of the buttons that are already on the jacket as well as how thick the jacket is. These snaps are as follows : Diameter of cap 15mm, post length 8mm (5/16"). This tool only comes in this one size

        A:  The brass snap fastener cannot be screwed into wood, you want the Brass SCREW snap fastener, it is about $1.00 more. The packages look the same except for the one word difference

          A:  I doubt it. I used to attach two pieces of cloth, each pretty heavy. That was really the limit, before it would be unworkable. You might have to first attach a fabric skirt strip to the wood, then use the snaps on that skirt

            A:  I am not sure - I looked at the package and it does not say, only says that there are 6 sets of snaps. I used them on my golf cart enclosure

                Perfect snaps for the job!
                If you forget to order a hockey mask with the snaps attached, you're going to need one of these! Install was a breeze, they were perfect size, perfect fit, and look great! Once installed, you can wander the camp in style and confidence knowing the straps are not coming off from an errant hay bail thrown at you or other assault. Live hard, play hard, these are up to the task.

                Worked perfectly
                I used the General Tools #1265 snap fastener kit to repair an outdoor folding chair carry bag which had a broken zipper. The General Tools kit is Made in the USA and of superior quality compared to the foreign made kit I originally tried. The instructions included with the #1265 show using the same side of the anvil for setting both the button/socket and the eyelet/stud. Use the concave side of the anvil to set the button/socket fastener. I put the anvil on a concrete floor when setting the fasteners. Tap the flaring tool until the fastener no longer turns (6-8 times in my case).

                Cheap fix
                Works great, low price, not sure long term durability, but for small repairs it is the ticket.

                The only thing bad is that they seem to be made to fit things thinner than 1/16". Barely worked on my dirt bike boots.

                Excellent product!
                I needed a way to secure the awning in the bag on my Pop-Up Trailer. The zipper was old and not reusable, and I didn't want to replace the bag it comes in. I researched online and I found what I needed. After reading the instructions, I was able to easily install them. The ends of the bag are open, but the contents are secure in the bag. Product is well made, and you can buy an extra kit with more of them.
