Hi

Please can someone tell me how to fit a new mushroom pin to a clasp. I had rather assumed that they were in two pieces that you had to push together, but it appears they're not, and now I don't understand how to fit it.

Thanks, Valerie

I would guess you need to put it into the hole then tap it with a hammer until the bottom of the pin expands and fills the hole completely.

although that may affect the top of the pin. Seems like a job for a specialist tool to me

If only I could find a specialist tool. 

Got the set of mixed sizes from Cousins because we frequently get straps in with missing pins, but cannot find any instructions or a tool to fit them with. As I said, I assumed they were in two parts, and that it would be self explanatory.

I have discovered that they are supposed to just be a friction fit, no tools required after all.

Now all I have to do is get one that is thicker stemmed than any that I have, then maybe I can finally do this repair.
