      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.

                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.
