      Comments about Ironwood Pacific Top-Snapper Tool:

      The tool took a few minutes to get used to because it was so easy and efficient to use and I was trying to make it difficult. The snaps connect so easy that I have to keep checking if they are really connected. The first use was at approximately 27* F and with this tool, it was a piece of cake even with gloves on. I took a chance on the recommendations that I had read on this and purchased two, when I have a fishing partner other than my old dog, putting the cover on the boat is a breeze even in a stiff breeze.

                OK, it seemed a little expensive for what it is, but after trying it I'm OK with it.
                It's very effective for stretching eisenglass and canvas panels over snaps - saves tearing up your fingernails! Best used in combination with a hair dryer to soften the plastic so it will stretch a bit easier.
                I was able to put on my winter canvas by myself using this tool - something I was *not* able to do before getting this tool!

                          Don't have the strength and it really helps with those tight tops and snaps. Have to purchase a second one . Would be great if it would float.

                          I found this tool to be a great skin saver for knuckles when trying to stretch tight covers around corners. Great for snapping removable boat cushions back in place. Should work well anywhere large snaps are used. Two different length blades makes it very useful in any situation. Padded grip makes it comfortable to use.
