    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.

    Comments about Ironwood Pacific Top-Snapper Tool:

    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.

                This tool is so helpful when snapping the cover onto our pontoon boat. I have arthritis in my hands and putting the cover on at the end of a day boating was painful and frustrating. It makes snapping the cover a SNAP!

                  This is the best tool i have on my boat. It makes putting the clears and canvas up so much easier, especially after they have been stored away for a a time. I would pay twice the price for this item.

                      This device is worth buying and using; however, I found that it couldn't grab inside snaps that were located in rubber edging like where the canvas with a rubber seal is presses against a window.

                      This will save me from replacing snaps that I would have torn out. This and some snap lube will keep my cover in good condition for a long time.

                            The tool does what it says it will do. I am very satisfied. My only wish is that it was a little bit smaller. I have ended up banging it on the blukhead and would rather be able to slide it in a pocket for the climb to the canvas coverings to be removed, otherwise performs as advertised.
