With the crop-a-dile, I can get rid of my hammer! No more banging, I don't have to worry about waking up my husband or ruining a table top either. I use eyelets on almost all my projects now because this multi-functional tool is so easy to use. The only disadvantage to this tool is that you can't go anywhere on a page with it, I try to place the eyelet piece on a smaller piece and adhere that to the page wherever I want to eliminate the problem though. All in all I highly recommend this tool because it is easy to use and versatile.
