ladies I have the ultimate secret weapon when crimping these down....

when you use a pliers they can leave yucky tool marks... and if you hammer it down you loose some control of where things lay... well I have the best tool thanks to DH...

this is a hand seamer or sheet metal pliers... with these I can close the crimp in one shot then really clamp it closed by repositioning it and clamping the crimp again on both sides...

poof perfect crimp...NO tool marks... no dents.... looks like a machine crimped it

I flinched at the price but it has saved me misery... you can find it at Lowes or Home Depot, in the tool Dept
I say what I want, when I want, no one pays me... Its my opinion take it or leave it

Has anyone seen them with just ribbon - not webbing and the extra hardware? Just curious if you thought they'd do as well
