**NEW LOWER PRICES**  Make your own specialty back! Also known as collets, flat backs are ideal for thumbtacks, pins, earring posts, hair elastics, brass fasteners, binder screws, refrigerator magnets, and pendants. Consider adding cardboard inserts to help secure findings. Use wherever a flat surface is desired.

Perfect for use with adhesive; hole provides "tooth" for improved grip. Hole diameters vary and are as follows:
  • #22, #24, #40 = 1/8"
  • #30 = 5/32" (3/16" available by special order - please call)
  • #36, #45, #50, #60, #80 = 3/16" (#36 and #45 also in stock with 1/8" hole —please specify at checkout)
3/16" holes are compatible with standard #24 snap posts.

Button shells (fronts) sold separately. Also fits most Rowley button dies when paired with low wall shells, either aluminum or rust-resistantplease check our Rowley link for specifics.

We stock flat backs that meet international standards in all sizes. We also stock small diameter backs in limited sizes for customers who prefer them, and as a low-cost option to purchasing a HUX die for heavy fabrics.

Unmodified Wade and Osborne #22 button dies have inside diameters that are slightly smaller than standard. If you own an unmodified Wade or Osborne #22 die, you must select the "small diameter" option and be prepared to bulk up your fabric.

Appearance may vary slightly from size to size.  Small hole flat backs tend to be shinier.  As always, please request samples if appearance or hole diameter is important to you.
