I just started using heavy duty snaps and really like the results.  They're secure and flash, but I always seem to mess up the tops.  You have to pound with it face down, so it gets all lumpy.  The package says to just tap it lightly, but then the snap is too loose.  Any suggestions on how to fix this problem?

There are special tools that you can buy to protect the cap.  It's just a small metal piece that the top of the snap sits in when you flip it over.  If you can't find it in stores, which a lot of times places will sell them with the heavy duty snaps, try these websites...
