  1. I use a Phillips screwdriver. I take the point of it and set it between the split arms of the rivet. I hammer the end of the screw driver until the point is in the groove of the rivet. I then simply continue to hammer the arms of the rivet until the bend flat against the washers.

     

    If you use the UKG method of adding snaps, then you will need to cut the arms down so they fit into the snap.

     

    Also, I place a piece of wood beneath the rivet so as to not create a mark on the head. The wood is firm enough yet doesn't leave a mark. Just hammer straight down from the back and it should work well. If you let the rivet twist while hammering you may end up with one arm bending more than the other. No hard to avoid, just be mindful of it.
