I fixed 4 snaps that had pulled through the canvas with this tool/kit without any problems. I reinforced the canvas by installing the snap through two layers of nylon strap, one in front of the canvas and one behind. I took a little time lining up the various pieces and the tool crimped everything with no problem. No bending at all, snap is nice and tight. The tool seemed plenty strong, does not require much pressure to install, so bending should not be a problem unless too much force is used.

I have to admit that when I first started using it, I was extremely pleased with it. I was using it to install carpet and it was working much better than the anvil set that I had tried to use previously (no place to hammer on the boat). However, about the sixth snap, the clinching tool started to bend and became less and less effective. I wouldn't bother buying this tool. I have not tried returning it yet, so I can't comment on how well WM is going to deal the return, but I'm not getting another one.

Piece of Junk!!!

      Comments about West Marine 72-Piece Canvas Snap Kit with Clinching Tool:

      This product is totally useless. The handle bent immediately. The rivet gun does not flatten out the shaft enough, so even if you are lucky enough to install a snap, it doesn't stay snapped because the unflattened shaft material gets in the way. I tried squeezing the tool harder and the tool broke. Absolute piece of JUNK!

          Purchased this tool from my local WM store in Mt Laurel NJ and after several snap installs the tool became bent and was not usable. Very disappointed in this tool. The snaps that I was able to install in the spring have now all fallen off.

              Only good for very light duty. Handles on pliers bent after a few squeezes. Now the handles touch before it crimps the fastener. A total waste of money. Pliers are now useless.

                      Handle bent during first use and the plier jaws will not close enough to crimp a snap. Recommend WM find another vendor to provide a durable crimp tool.

                        This thing broke before installing even one snap correctly. There should be a class action law suit against WM for selling this garbage.

                            This did not work at all. Bent without much force at all rendering it useless on its first snap. I'm very dissapointed
