So I bought this little guy a while ago:

Brought it home and looked at it, and can't figure out how to attach the part that locks in! It only has a large hole in the middle. The back part attaches like a magnetic snap with some prongs and a metal back piece.

Does anyone know how to attach this?? I've googled like crazy and can't seem to find an answer!

Maybe a brad or a tack or something?  I guess it didn't come with anything like that though.  Or sew through the hole?  I don't know if that'd hold it well enough though.

I think a brad would work. That side should hang off the edge of the fabric so when you buckle the clasp it pulls both sides together. Smiley

Hmmm. Thanks for the help!

I forgot to add that the top of the brad had two layers with a gap in between, and the hole only goes through the top layer.
