Now for the eyelet tool. Position the eyelet tool with the front of the eyelet in the bottom part of the tool. Should fit into place perfectly. Now position the top part of the tool over the back end of the eyelet and with your hammer gently at first start tapping in a circular motion and rolling the eyelet into place. A couple tips for you: turn the top part of the tool in a clockwise motion after each few taps, add a bit more pressure to your hammering after the eyelet starts to roll and do this on a very hard and flat surface like cement or a marble slab. If you find that one side of the eyelet starts rolling more than the other, focus your hammering to that one side a little more. If you’re using the scored eyelets, which are the most commonly found eyelets in sewing stores, keep in mind all the tips above, but forget the washer which you won’t be able to find in a sewing store mostly likely anyway.
