I never used an eyelet until I bought my Crop-a-Dile this past summer! It makes setting eyelets so simple, and it doesn't even take any strength to do it which is even better. A friend used mine and couldn't believe how easy it made setting an eyelet compared to other eyelet setters. Its great that it has different settings for different sized eyelets, and hole punches to make setting eyelets easy as well. I love using eyelets now, this tool just makes it easy and fun to do. It also comes with 400 eyelets in different colors so you don't even need to buy any to get started!
