Snap conversion for Flip

How easy is it to convert aplix to snaps on flip covers? Is kam snap pliers enough or better with a snap press? Thx!

The pliers is enough. That's how I've done our covers and BG 3.0s. They all work surprisingly well (not that I doubted the pliers, just my skills )

It is super easy with pliers, easier than converting a pocket IMO.

I was doubting my skills too may just try this! Any "how to" threads?

That's a very thorough tutorial! Thanks for posting this. I have a couple aplix covers that I've been thinking of converting to snaps as well.
