Dies on this page fit the KAM DK98 professional press only. This press, pictured in the right column, has a curved handle. The bottom die shank is approx 1/2" in diameter with a smooth shank that drops into the press. The top die shank is approx 3/8" in diameter with a smooth shank that slides into the press and is held in place with an allen screw. Click here for dies for the DK93 press (straight handle).
To determine which dies you need, first select your snaps from our store. Then choose the die set that matches your snaps. For example, if your snaps are fashion spring size 20, choose the die set labeled as the same. A different die set is required for each different size and style of snap. Some dies are not available for the DK98 press model, but an adapter is available that will allow you to use the DK93 dies. If you do not see the dies you need listed on this page, purchase them from the DK93 dies page along with the DK98-to-DK93 adapter.

About 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. We will eventually be switching over to extended lip version only.
