    This is the first snap tool that I have seen that is a 2 in 1. If you have tight canvas, older snaps, etc. this tool will make the job of "snappin up" much easier. I have arthritic hands and lack the strength to pull canvas tight and push the snap on. With this tool I can painlessly and quickly accomplish the task. Be sure you use a small amount of something like zipper lube or Vaseline inside each female side of the snap to make it even easier.
    I had an older style of the tool with only the long end and a wood handle. It worked but not as well as this one. The large soft handle and dual snappers are a definte bonus. I'm glad I made the upgrade.

    It helps get those tight snaps on. The trick is to get them aligned- then just push down. For those really tight/shrunken canvas snaps, it adds mechanical advantage without destroying your thumbs.

              Great tool, as it saves your finger tips and nails from painful manual useage to put on and talke off boat cover snaps. WORD OF CAUTION: Strongly suggest you use the tool's wrist strap, as I didn't, found out the hard way, as it took a swim, never to return.....had to order another, but it remains a great tool.....just need to have the user wise-up. Another boating lesson learned the hard way! :-)

                I am looking for a tool that will remove the snaps on my boat cover, they are difficult to remove, I am afraid of pulling the snaps out of the boat cover, will this toll both remove and snap ?

                  Yes, just be careful since you will be prying against something. I would also recommend using some Snap Lube (item 73362) to free up your snaps some.
