So if I'm going with the grommet / nut & bolt method to attach armor, I have a couple questions:
If I use the following tools, do I need to cut a hole in the vest fabric or do the tools do it for me. The entire set up is around $140, does that sound like a good price?
$84 GROMMET SNAP TOOL
Outstanding features- Quick-snap interchangeable dies, no alignment problems, 3 1/2" throat, high strength, low weight, aluminum alloy, additional dies available, for grommets and other fasteners. Replacement parts are also available.
$50 SELF PIERCING DIE SET (attaches to snap tool)
Self Piercing Grommet Dies for Press-N-Snap Tool with the Press-N-Snap tool.
$10 (100) SELF PIERCING GROMMET/WASHER
Cuts holes and sets grommet in one operation! Premium self piercing grommets have a sharpened edge for superior piercing ability. Washers are made with a patented design with small teeth and a channel to prevent slipping and provide extra holding power.
Thanks for comments.
