These 9.5mm rivets add a finishing touch to your handmade jeans. Each rivet comes with a back tack and can be installed with a Jean Rivet Hand Setter. We recommend purchasing extra rivets for practice. One set includes the rivet and post/back tack.
IMPORTANT: depending on the thickness of the fabric and the amount of layers your are intending to reinforce, you will need trim the rivet post to 1-2mm taller than your fabric stack. Do not trim the rivet post until you have determined the height of your fabric stack! We are including photos showing the rivet in position to be set, before and after trimming. Rivet posts can be trimmed with a pair of wire cutters.
