If the 'round thing' is sort of shaped like a nail but not pointy, thats what you hammer on to smash the snal parts together. They only work sometimes and generally suck. The Snap Setter from Snapsource.com is very nice and worth the $16 if you use a lot of snaps.

If you look closely at the snap button and it's mate, you will notice a groove of sorts, when you hammer the pieces properly the teeth on the ring bit bend into that groove making it nice & sturdy. Hammered/ set poorly the  teeth just bend randomly & fall off.

I've never figured out what that plastic ring is they include in crappy snaps is for.
