New Cover Button Assembly Dies for KAM Snaps Press Pliers





Cover buttons are a great way to add a decorative touch to your project. You can cover them with your choice of fabric for a perfect match every time.  Here we've combined our cover buttons with our glue pad disk bracelets to make a beautiful bracelet. (Click here for tutorial.)


Cover buttons are very easy to assemble with the manual assembly tool, included with each pack of cover buttons.  But if you're putting together more than a few, it can be tiring on your fingers.  Here's where our new cover button dies come in.



Our cover button dies are compatible with the KAMsnaps KX8J (or the older KX6A) professional handheld press.  They also work with the KAM DK93 table press with DK93-KX adapter base or the DK98 table press with DK98-KX adapter set. (Not compatible with the basic K1 or K2 pliers for plastic snaps.)

KAM Snaps Size 20 Extra Long Prongs vs Size 20 Regular Prongs


How can you tell the difference between size 20 regular vs size 20 extra long KAM plastic snaps when looking at them?

Since there is only a minuscule (0.6mm) difference in length, it's nearly impossible to measure with a ruler or even to visually see any difference. Instead, look at the side of the cap with the prong. Size 20 extra long caps will have a pinwheel pattern around the prong (as shown in the photo of the snap on the right). The regulars do not.

Size 20 (regular) snaps are the most commonly used size. They're often found on cloth diapers, cloth menstrual pads, and many household projects that don't use thin, stretchy or delicate fabric. The prong length on these are 5.6mm.

Size 20 extra long snaps are needed for thicker material, such as double layers of marine vinyl for key fobs. (If the material is too thick for the snap, the snap will just fall apart.) The prong length of size 20 extra long snaps is 6.2mm.

Tip: if your snaps are not closing properly, most likely the prongs are too long for that particular material. These videos explain why this happens. If you'd rather not buy shorter snaps, just cut the tips off the prongs prior to installation to shorten them.
