Also called a Pivot Tack.  Combine with pivot backs to hold button firmly in place—will not separate under normal conditions.  Popular for shoes, caps, drapery applications, apparel, and crafts.  Zinc or nickel plated, plain or finished head, depending on availability.

NOTE:  There is a worldwide shortage of 1/2" tacks (zinc and nickel).  Please select 7/16" or 9/16" instead —if you're not sure which will work best for your application, please call for samples.

We suggest 3/8" as the standard length for many applications, but stress the importance of using the correct length for your project.  Attempting to use too short a tack can force the button to pull away from it; too long a tack will dent the shell.
