All press studs consist of 4 parts called parts A,B,C and D.
They are sold in full sets i.e. a bag of 10 will contain 40 parts.
Part A is the top or cap. Part B is the female part and is riveted through the leather to part A. Part C is the male part and is riveted through the leather to part D.
All press studs can be fixed by hitting a simple tool with a hammer. A different tool is needed for each size of press stud. Click here for a diagram.
