Default Key Fob Question

Hey there....for those that do Key Fobs, If you don't have the tool that someone posted about from Lowes, what do you use to finish the clamp thingy without denting or scratching it???

Thanks in advance!

Sarah

I just put a pot holder around it to protect it, and then I use regular craft pliers, bought for making stuff with wire, ect. Just clamp it down tightly. I have not had an issue with them coming off, etc.

yeap thats good way to do it... I just dont like not seeing where/what I am clamping and if the material isnt thick enough it can leave marks...
