  • Pres N Snap Tool Needed

    Does anyone have a Pres N Snap tool I could borrow? I'm about to begin the process of installing a new soft top and this handy tool would make the snaps go on so much easier. The cheapest one I can find online is $110. I'd much rather just borrow one since I have no intention of ever needing to use it again... I'll happily pay the postage for sending it to me. Here's a picture of one.

    I've done 3 tops for my 6 and always just used the little punch and receptacle bit you can buy an any hardware store for less than $10. That machine looks really nice, but unless you are a professional upholsterer, it's overkill.

      Agreed. I’m working on an old Airstream trailer and I am using a little $10 kit from eBay that includes the punch, a concave mini anvil, and the snap pieces. Works fine.

        The fabric stores have these that look sort of like a pliers and work great. Maybe $12?

          Thanks, Mike. I had read somewhere that those didn't work very well, but I ended up buying some and they work fine.
