How It Works
The button stud is riveted onto part of your project where it will be stable and out of the way. Then the strap or flap that needs to be secured has at least one hole punched in it that is about 3/16 of an inch in diameter that the stud will be pressed through from the underside of the strap or flap.
Button Stud Installation:
- Find where you want the stud to be positioned and punch a 1/8" hole there.
- From the back side of the leather push the rivet post through the hole.
- Place the Button Stud head onto the rivet post.
- Find or make a metal setting tool. All the tool needs to be is a piece of metal with a hole in it that is large enough for the head of the stud to fit into, but not so large that the base of the stud fits into the hole.
- Place the Button Stud in the hole of your tool so that your project is upside down and you can see the base of the rivet post.
- Hammer the Rivet Post into the Button Stud until the whole assembly is snug on the leather.
