Default thinking about getting the snapsetter tool

But I'm not sure what to get. I've been looking into making pacifier clips... many of the moms I know asked if I make them, so I think I'm going to give it a try. I need to find a template somewhere, too, I guess.

I have decided I want to use snaps instead of velcro, but don't know which tool I should get, and what size. There are also adapters, but I have no clue if I need any.

Do you have one? Any advice on what I should get just to make the clips?
Thanks!

At Walmart, they have a snap tool. Just got one the other day for putting snaps on bibs. It's so easy. Just ask in the craft section. It looks like a large set of pliers and comes with some snaps.

I have this tool too, I mainly use it to set snaps in my wallets and purses. I can't live without the thing. Much easier than that stupid blue snap setter they give you when you buy a package of snap that you have to set with a hammer...do you know how many times I have hammered my fingers? LOL

I saw this last time I was there and wondered how well it worked! Great, something else for me to spend money on!

I looked for one in walmart today but didn't see it. I looked where the snaps and eyelets were, but our walmart closest to us doesn't really have the best selection of craft stuff. I think I'll try hobby lobby and see what I can find there.

The best one that I've used is from snapsource.com. Fast shipping and perfect snap settings everytime. The other tool (dritz) that I used kept messing up my snaps :0(
