Directions for Use and Tips: Brass fittings with pegs are intended to be riveted onto leather. For this we recommend using a brass washer and a ball peen hammer. When the leather and washer are in place the peg is lightly hammered until it ‘’mushrooms’’ over the rivet to secure it into place.

Brass is softer than steel and care must be taken not to strike the pegs too hard - striking them with too great a force risks bending or breaking them. The rounded part of a ball peen hammer is useful for shaping the flattened mushroom head to get an optimal fit. Please Note that the brass pin must not extend too far past the leather and washer before hammering as only a small portion of the pin is needed to flatten and fit it to the leather. If the pins are too long you will risk bending or breaking them without getting a tight fit. If they are too long they can be cut down to a proper size before hammering.
