Christy K: backup and if I change to a new collarJul 25, 2012
Michael L: After 3 years of the name plate being riveted on the collar one of the rivets broke. love the name plate so just getting new rivets. I like how the name plate is on the collar no rattling.Jul 25, 2012
Heather R: I lost the ones that came with a previous tag and it's always good to have extrasJun 12, 2012
Donald W: Because I could not find 2-piece rivets anywhere...so I Googled "2-piece rivets", and your site came up with reference to "dog collars"...just what I was looking for. Hardware stores do not carry them!Jun 2, 2012
Alexander G: Necessary to attach name plate-should be included with tag offer.May 8, 2012

Christopher Z: Easy to attach IDs and license to collerMar 14, 2012
April B: We didn't want any dangling tags for our dog since she is frequently running through brush in the woods and fields where we take her for fun time. These (which are not sold by any of the "big box" pet stores around us) will help us affix her tags flush to her collar, preventing her from getting caught on twigs, etc.Mar 8, 2012
Laurie S: I needed these to attach my dogs tag to a new collar.Feb 27, 2012
S C: To be able to change the tags to a new collar.Feb 23, 2012
Robert P:To use the rivets, all you need to do is put the two pieces together and tap them gently with a hammer with a hard surface behind. The two pieces will then be bound together and are almost perfectly flush with the collar and will not come off.
You need to put two holes in the collar first to get the rivet through. I did this by placing the collar on a piece of wood, and using the tag as a template to see where the holes were needed, put a nail through the collar. I then installed the rivets as described above.
The tag and rivets has worked great and got rid of noisy, dangling tags. The tag outlasted the collar, so reused the the tag on a new collar by purchasing just the rivets.May 29, 2012
Chuck BStaff:1. Place the nameplate on the collar in the location you would like to install it. 2. Mark the nameplate rivet hole positions. 3. Punch holes in the collar where you made the nameplate hole marks with a leather punch, hammer and punch, drill, etc. 4. Push the rivet posts through the holes in the collar and nameplate holes from the backside of the collar. 5. Tap the rivet caps onto the rivet posts with a hammer. 6. That's it...You're done!
They compress to the thickness of the collar with the name plate when we secure them. Chuck B. STaffMay 18, 2012
L L:The long part fits into the short part and then you place one side on a flat, hard surface and hammer the other side with a hammer so that the end of the long part expands inside the short side. A better way is to buy a rivet setting kit from Tandy Leather and use it so that the top and bottom is not pounded until misshaped and not pretty. My rivets are 3/16" - 1/4" when secured.May 29, 2012
A L:You just put the end with the stem through a hole you make in the collar, snap the other end on and then hit it with a hammer or mallet. They are probably about 3 mm secured. They have always fit tightly against any collar I have purchased once the plate is on.May 30, 2012
D N:The rivets are tapped with a hammer until they are tight. They fit snug against the dog's collar. the length of the rivet is only width of the thickness of the dog collar and does not protrude and further. I used a nylon collar. I hope this helps.Jun 4, 2012
Stephanie W asked:I I would like to put my own brass id tag on a collar and am having trouble finding a collar that allows you to do this So are these easy to use? would you use these on leather or nylon collars? Thanks StefiApr 25, 2011
Megan T:We have "how to" instructions on our website. Here is the link: http://site.dogids.com/nameplateinstructions.pdf Also, we do have riveted nameplate collars on our website if you wanted to take that route. We offer personalization on the id tag and you won't have to spend time riveting the tag onto a collar, as we do it for you. Ours come in leather. Here is the link for the riveted nameplate collar. http://www.dogids.com/collar-with-nameplate.html
