I just received these pliers and they look as described. I'm a huge sucker for florals and the print definitely makes the pliers stand out. It is by far the prettiest tool in my tool box. So far, they work well and I'm super happy with the results. I have never done this before and felt intimidated, but the instructions were clear and the video helped. Thank you so much!

I finally had a chance to use the pliers, but before I did, I made a base stand for them. My hand would definitely get sore using these only by hand, though the grip is not uncomfortable so can easily be used for just a few snaps, but if being used for a large number, I recommend making a simple base. It made the job so much easier! I gave a stand to a friend, and she loves it!! I had read the suggestion of practicing with the pliers before using them for any projects, but I found they worked brilliantly from the first - much easier than the old metal snap pliers that many of us have experience with!

These snap pliers work great. They might be slightly off center or I am not able to keep the snap center so sometimes a little bit of the outer ring gets shaved, but the snaps are still secure

These are a great quality set of pliers. I originally had the set from hobby lobby and it didn't work as reliably as this one. I get a good press almost every time I apply a snap. It has been a diaper saver! When I had a diaper lose a snap or one wasn't locking in like it should, I could fix it with these. Also used for several other projects around the house. Only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the handles are not very comfortable after a few presses and begin to slip from my hands. I fixed that with a little bit of plastic handle dip for tools. Overall excellent product.

I like the pliers,they are the first I have owned, but I have found that it is really hard to get a good set with them. I bought them to refurbish some diapers and a few I have had a hard time geting then pressed flat enough for the snaps to function properly for everyday use. Other than that they work fine.

These snap pliers are a really good quality. The price can't be beat. It's really easy to use and the snaps hold up well. I've made a lot of things for my small children and haven't had a problem with the snaps breaking or anything.

Sewing snaps on dolls clothes takes me forever, and I usually end up with sore, punctured fingers. So I saw this, decided to try it, and............
WHY DIDN'T I FIND THIS SOONER???? I did a "trial snap" on a fabric scrap, and it was on in less than 30 seconds--I just sat and looked at it and thought no, it CAN'T be THIS easy! But it is!! Hooray!!!!

The floral version was the excuse I needed to upgrade from the BV pliers I've been using for months. I knew these had better reviews, and I can verify that is true!! The final product i get from using the KAM brand pliers is SO much better than what I was getting from my other ones. They feel a little different, and the opening isn't as big as I'm used to, but that's part of what makes these work so well. And last but not least, the floral one I got is officially the prettiest tool I own!!!

I have these pliers for when I am travelling, and when applying size 14 snaps (I have a snap press, but not the size 14 die set).
I love these, and just bought a set for my daughter-in-law for Christmas.

I love these pliers! I started out making diaper covers using another brand from a company. Often the snaps were not usable and had to be redone. Not so with the KamSnaps pliers! The snaps always come out just right! Easy to use , perfect every time!

I finally got around to using the snap pliers and it works great! I'm snapping everything now :) I use them on my mama cloth pads that I make, bibs, I've even snapped my daughter's shoes on the little ribbon by the heel so now they won't get lost (as easily).

Very helpful instructions. No complaints here. Great ideas on what to use them for at kamsnaps.com. Look out craft world, here I come!! Can't wait to start my next project. Thanks KAMsnaps!

I'm a new snapper, and after a some research between Babyville and Kam, I chose these. They were super easy to use and the attached directions were great.

My only complaint would be that the included awl was hooked at the tip, which snagged my fabric. I contacted the company and they said the would send me a new awl. I got a response 5 minutes after emailing them!

I was skeptical as to how easy this would be to use since it looks like a complicated device. However it was such a cinch to use. I followed the instructions on the website and in a few minutes had created my first snap creation. I got hooked and started putting snaps on a bunch of things. Now I can't stop coming up with ideas for more things to snap.

Fantastic! I had been using a large, bulky snap press that weighed about 15 pounds, but this does the job just as well. It's so much smaller and lighter! I know this item works because I put a snap on the wrong way and my husband (who's quite well-built) had a fairly difficult time getting it off, so this snap press does the job right.

I'm so glad I bought this. There was a little indent in the rubber stopper and I thought that it would affect the snaps, but it's all good! This thing almost gives you a craft high. When I first started working with these I really thought there was no way I would use all these snaps, but now I can't stop finding ways to use this thing!

This is just a great product. I have been using metal snaps for kids clothes for some time but I saw these and decided to give it a try. Applying these plastic snaps is so much easier with the KAM pliers than your traditional metal snap pliers. I can't wait to use these on future projects!

I have been crafting for 40+ years &, having seen some of the projects my friends have created & sold using Kamsnaps, I decided to try them myself. I am so glad I did! I only just received my kit but had prepared items to practice with and can't believe that I already have more orders so it will pay for itself quick! With the many project on their website, I am going to be busy! Thank you Kamsnaps

Shipped lightening fast, and the item is as described. I've read that these pliers are superior to the type that Joanne Fabrics carries, and compatible with the snaps available in their stores as well, although there is a much greater selection of colors from the KAM brand.The pliers are easy to figure out, and there is not much of a learning curve.

I ordered the K2 pliers thinking they would be better than the K1 pliers. Boy was I wrong! I happened to buy a snap-removal pliers at the same time, which is made of the K1 pliers model. There is no comparison! The K2 model is much flimsier and less comfortable to use. I then found a video on line that compared KAM K1 pliers to "Baby-----" snap pliers. I was greatly disappointed to find that the K2 pliers and awl are EXACTLY the same as the "Baby-----" pliers!!! I have applied more than 100 snaps with these pliers and I'm now having problems with the snaps coming off! I want to return the K2 pliers and get the K1 pliers!

Reply from KAMsnaps: Thank you for your honest feedback. There are a couple of things to point out however. 1. Our K2 pliers are not the same as Babyville pliers, at least not the version offered by BV as of July 2015. I don't think that actually matters much, I just state that to clarify.

2. The removal pliers are 3x as costly as the installation pliers. Why? Because the dies used in the removal pliers are made of a different material than the dies used in the installation pliers (whether they be K1 or K2). It is those more expensive dies that make the removal pliers easier to use compared to the installation pliers, not to mention that the actual mechanism for punching a hole out in the snaps for removal is completely different than the one for pressing down to flatten a prong for installation (again, regardless of whether they are K1 or K2).

Finally, having sold the K1 pliers for years, we are very aware of the advantages and disadvantages of this model as well as the K2, which are all listed in our Guide to Snaps: http://bit.ly/1HJf20L. We recommend the K2, not because it is perfect but because while it may not be as "pretty" as the K1 as far as physical features, there are certain aspects about it that we find make it easier to install snaps compared to the K1. The K2's longer shank for example means less pressure needs to be used, which is helpful for those with arthritic hands. Having said that though, naturally each person will have her own preference. If you are having a problem with your pliers, our customer service is always available to assist you with a simple email.

This does exactly what I need it to do. I work from a home studio and apply 15-40 sets of snaps a week. Rather than go to the main shop to do this task with the large table press, I wanted to be able to do it at my home studio without taking up much space or requiring an investment. At the price, I thought this was worth a try. I'm very pleased. My hand will become fatigued applying more than a dozen sets or so at a time, but the snaps set securely, I don't need to change dies for male and female sides, and it all stores in a small tray. Overall, very pleased with this item. Also appreciate that it came with a screwdriver (for changing between snap sizes), another size set of die, and an awl. It's handy to keep them all together in one place. The assorted colors of snaps sets were a nice little add on that lets me try some new colors, as well.

I absolutely love this! I bought this KAM snap set because I was making baby bibs, and the snaps seemed to have a much cleaner look than velcro, and I thought they might last longer. I also will be using diaper covers with snaps with my newborn, so this would come in handy should the snaps fall off.

The pliers were very simple to use once I watched this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0qvE8btSAEg

I can see myself using KAM snaps on many other projects! I'm really glad I bought this set. I'm definitely going to be buying more snap colours in the near future - this will be a great addition to my sewing projects.

I tried a knock off cheapo brand first, and they were horrible so I ended up buying the kam snaps and pliers and holy cow it's a whole world of difference! So if you are debating on what brand to get I'd deff go with kam from the start! Great quality! And I'd love how the help animals in need.

I use handheld pliers in my diaper production. We do 100 diapers a week. The new model of pliers is a huge disappointment. It doesn't open very wide making snapping difficult, the rubber stopper is so stiff it's almost impossible to completely press the snap. The material is very flimsy in comparison to the older model, it's almost like plastic vs the metal of the other one. I would not recommend purchasing these. Go with the older model while you can.

REPLY FROM KAMSNAPS: Thank you for your honest review. If you have only used one model, then there may be a learning curve if you opt to switch to the other. The specifications of the K2 pliers, while slightly different than the K1, allow them to provide a firmer press and more consistent results in the long-run. If, however, you are happy with the original pliers, it is recommended you stick to the pliers you are already familiar with.
