Prong and Nail Backs
Item Id: 287
Special order only - please call.
An alternative to tufting with wire shank buttons.  Use in applications where sewn buttons would be impractical.  Available in various lengths.  Specify prongs, threaded nails, or No-Dent nails.  Washers also available.  Button shells (fronts) sold separately.

Prong backs are intended for upholstery; heavy metal prongs are too aggressive for most crafting applications.  If you need pronged brads for crafting, we recommend making your own with flat backs and brass fasteners or plain scrapbooking brads.  Secure with a little hot glue (if necessary) and a cardboard insert, and you're done!

Please be aware that we generally stock #22 prongs, threaded nails, and No-Dent buttons with diameters that are slightly smaller than standard.  These #22 backs fit unmodified Wade and Osborne dies, although you may need to bulk up your fabric.  #22 backs that meet international sizing standards are available, but there may be minimum quantity requirements.

Some older dies are solid and cannot accommodate prongs and nails —check your dies!  As always, please request samples.

Use a nail driving tool for trouble-free installation of finished threaded nail and No-Dent buttons.
