I had the Dritz pliers a long time ago. I made it aspode on the first use. And I was being very gentle. The head pieces flew apart and the handles separated. I'm lucky I didn't lose an eye.

I don't have much problems setting them with a hammer and the tools needed for that. Once you figure it out it's works well. The tools I use I got a long time ago when I was into leather crafting, for me they work great.

The setter in that package looks really flimsy. I wouldn't want to use it. But I tend to make things aspode with a mere touch. ^_^

As with most of my stuff, I got my mom's snap pliers. Solid metal, except where the snaps go in, and that's this soft plastic. I love it. It doesn't work well with those pearly snaps, but I can still use it.

I love it. Admittedly, took me a few tries (I didn't have instructions for it) to understand exactly how to use it, but once I got it, it worked great. Although once in a while I mess up and miss some of the prongs. Roll Eyes

SNAP SOURCE SNAPS ROCK!

Just made a crocheted, felted tea cosy, and these long-tine ones actually worked through the thick fabric!  Slicker than slick!

I set my first snaps today -- it wasn't too bad! Not to mention that I did it while holding my one year old and trying to keep the setter out of my 3YO's hands!

The one that I got it by Dritz but it is very like those at the Snap Source. The Joann's near me just had the one that was like it -- the rest were plier like and looked intimidating to me.

I just set the snaps in the order they said and tap tap tapped with a wee hammer I borrowed from my husband. One time I had a piece in upside down and messed it up, but otherwise, it worked well.
