Brass Half moon fittings for bag flaps, set of 2
Supplied with 6 brass rivets.
A high-quality product made by Lord Of Battles®
This brass decoration has integrated rivets / shanks on the back. To attach it to leather, you need:
- A hammer (preferably spherical)
- A punch plier e.g. Article no. 9602
- Washers e.g. Article no. 10324
Punch holes into the leather on an appropriate position. The diameter of the holes must be approximately equal to the diameter of the rivet shanks on the back of the fitting. Put the fitting on the leather and stick the shafts through the leather. Place the washers on the rivets / shanks and carefully hammer the shaft ends with the hammer. Do not lay the fitting on any hard material. Optimal is leather, soft wood or a thick solid fabric. So you will prevent damaging the front of the fitting. It is better to hammer with less force, but with more strokes. With hammering, the shaft ends become thicker – kind of hats are formed there so that the washers can no longer be removed from the shafts. The fitting is now fixed on the leather.
