You can purchase our 1/2" screw on spikes in packages of 10, 25, 50 or 100.
These spikes are simple to use and can be attached to most items without the need of any special and hard to find tools. Each spike comes with a matching screw that screws onto the bottom of the spike.
Instructions for application of our screw on spikes:
1. Simply create a hole in the item you wish to attach the screw on spike to. You may wish to use a small punch to do this. These tools can be found at most craft stores. On some materials, such as denim, you may find that using a small blade-less awl is a more appropriate tool. Using an awl to create a hole in these materials just spreads the threads of the fabric apart instead of cutting out a hole. This technique will prevent the item you are applying our screw on spikes to from developing frayed edges because you are nut cutting any of the fibers.
2. Take the screw and push it through the hole you have created from the back so that the screw head is on the unseen part of the garment and the threading is is on the outside. Make sure that the screw fits snuggly in the hold as you do not want the screw on spikes to have the ability to slide around or fall out.
4. If you find that your screw on spikes are sagging or the material is puckering where the screw is you may want to add a backing material to your assembly. You can use many materials for this but something heavy such as leather, canvas or a metal washer may give you the best results. Just put the screw through the backing material of your choice before putting it the hole in whatever you area adding screw on spikes to and it should help remedy the problem.
5. Repeat these steps for each screw on spike you wish to add. With practice you should become quick at this and make some incredibly unique items.
