***NEW SIZING STANDARD for #22 (see info below)
Inverted Back - 20 pieces
Inverted Back - 1 GR (144)
Inverted Back - 5 GR (720)
Originally designed for earrings, lapel pins, and other jewelry applications. The unique upside-down back holds posts and tacks without cardboard or felt inserts—simply drop them into the very small hole. Nickel-plated. WB Exclusive!

Technically, this is a nail back... without the nail. Use #45 inverted backs to create a snap-on button by punching a larger hole and setting a #24 snap socket into it. Smaller inverted backs work beautifully with #20 and KAM-type snap sockets without modification. As always, please request samples first to test your ideas. *** SEE BELOW

We recommend standard shells for inverted backs. Button shells (fronts) sold separately.

Unmodified Wade, Osborne, and newer C & C Metal #22 button dies have inside diameters that are slightly smaller than standard.
***#22 inverted backs will NOT fit these dies and there is no "small diameter" option available.
