Pant Snaps

I have some Fieldsheer Mercury pants that I've been riding in for just over a year. There are two button snaps at the waist and one has worn out and come apart. Fieldsheer was nice enough to ship a small bag of replacement parts with the pants, but I don't know how to replace it.

If I have the terminology correct, then my Button and Socket are fine, but I need help replacing the Eyelet and Stud. Maybe I need some sort of tool.

you have come to the right place. yes you do need a special tool. all snaps have to pieces.and there are four seperate dies you need to replace them.you can find them at your local fabric,or craft supply store for a few dollars . they are sold as a kit.the part you see on your jacket or pants is the female . usually with a logo on it.the one you dont see is the stud.cut the old worn out one away with side cutters and simply replace the two parts.then drive them home with a hammer. dont hit it too hard you can always tap it a little more.it works like a two piece rivet, just like what is in your levis.hit it until it does not spin freely.

Wire ties.



Hahaha. Just kidding. I've wondered about this myself.

went to the all-mighty Wal-Mart and picked up a tool kit. Luckily it came with snaps the exact same size because the second or third whack with the hammer was too much. I pretty much destroyed the thing.

Next try coming up. Just a little tappy tap.

Jim. I saw the zip tie track jacked on the LSBK site. Nice!
