Notes About Dies:
Dies to Remove Plastic Snaps: This 2-piece die set was fitted for #20 plastic snaps but works with other sizes with proper centering. Watch video.
Extended Lip Dies for Plastic Snaps: #16/14 and #20 sockets and studs also come in an extended lip version. The extended lip allows the snap piece to sit more securely in the die and can better accommodate minor variances in snap molds. Extended lip dies can install color snaps and clear snaps, whereas regular dies can only install color snaps. #20 is only available with the extended lip.
