Use our eyelets in:
Dolls - Scrapbooks - Models - Electronics - Cards - Military medals - Fabric art - Metal art and jewelry - Artist books - Clothing - Shoes - Home decor

Our eyelets are arranged below by the size hole they require. 1/16", 1/8" or 3/16"

Any "garage" hammer will work, but my favorite is our Brass Mallet. A hammer made from steel is very hard and will mushroom the top of your eyelet setter very quickly. A brass mallet is softer, and therefore has more "give."

Better Eyelet Tool in 2 sizes!
See the nubby at the end? It goes down into the hole in an eyelet and makes all the difference in the world. No more oddly shaped or split eyelets! Use with your hammer. The Better Eyelet Tool now comes in the good old 1/8" size and in the larger 3/16" size. Both sizes have the nubby and work wonderfully!

Don't miss our e-x-t-r-a  l-o-n-g
eyelets in copper, silver and brass!

My favorite surface for installing eyelets is a cutting mat. It has a little give so that it doesn't flatten out the eyelet but is strong enough to take the abuse. -- Christine Cox

Eyelet Setting Tools

Simple eyelet-setting instructions

 

Drill a hole in your material (I've used a Japanese Screw Punch in the animated gif above)
Put the eyelet through the hole
Turn the material over and place it on a cutting mat or similar material

Insert the eyelet tool into the back of the eyelet.
Tap, tap, tap the tool gently with a hammer until the eyelet flares out
Keep tapping until the eyelet's back looks very similar to its front
Remove the tool and gently give the back of the eyelet a tap or two with the hammer to completely crimp it down over the material


Brads


Black

These simple-to-use brads come in great colors and have a million uses! Use them in your wedding invitations, on cards, in artist's books and in scrapbooking. Simply poke a small hole into your paper or cardstock, send the brad through and then bend the legs back. They're great for the center of a paper clock and can even be used around the office.

Rivets


Use these 2-part rivets for affixing a tab closure to your leather books. They have a "double cap" structure meaning that that are beautiful on the inside and the outside of your work. They are easy to use with your hammer.

Post 3mm wide and 1/4" long before compression
Best for material 1/8" thick
Hole size 3/16"

 

The 3.5mm tip for our Japanese Screw Punch is just the right size for these rivets
