Default YOUR OPINION ON CLIKIT OR READY SET EYELET TOOLS

I heard about the Clikit here in the forum and found the Ready-Set tool by accident. Their prices are comparable. They both can be found on line (if they are not sold out) from 35.00 to 42.00. The Clikit has attachment kits and can emboss. The kits are like holidays, outdoors, christmas, etc.

I also came across some message boards like this one:

Has anyone bought either and what do you think about it? I think $35.00 is a lot to spend if you are not sure. LOLOLOL

I have the eyelet setter from Ready Set Tools and LOVE it! I have never tried the others, so can't give you a good comparison, but I bought mine because I could never get the hammer thing to work right and felt it took too long. With the Ready Set Tool I can set a lot of eyelets very quickly. It's easy to use and doesn't make much noise. I would highly recommend it. It's worth the $$ I spent.

Default Ready set

If you don't mind my asking, where did you buy it?

Thank you for responding.

Default Clickit

I have demo'd the Clikit and the Fiskars brand. The Clikit is totally awesome, I haven't tried to use the other one. I highly the Cliket, it is totally worth the money. Very easy to use, needs a little strength but nothing bad.

Clikit is by Karen Foster, so is the Ready Set by Fiskars?

Default Clikit

IS the ready-set by Fiskars? If it is I would totally go with with the Clikit. The store that I demo'd them at had both and the Fiskars ones were all loose on the top, customers had pulled them up too hard and broke a connection, they were still usable, but the Fiskars were only 17.99 for 3 different sizes. I wasn't impressed. I truly loved the Clikit.

I would hightly recomment the ready-set. It is not by Fiskars. It is a couple in UTAH that invented it, and is their small business. I purchased mine at the scrapbook expo last October when they were JUST released. The owners are very nice, and they demo'd the product there. I use mine ALL the time for stamp clubs, and such, and recently, mine broke. I emailed, and had a new one in my mailbox in 2 days. Their customer service was amazing! It is a great tool for ALL eyelets. I can't imagine how I ever got along without mine. HTH...Sarah

I got my Ready Set Tool at a Rubber Stamp Expo. The demo (hands on) really sold me on it. They were setting eyelets with only a pillow underneath! You can order them online at www.readysettools.com.

I just went to the Fiskars site to see if I could find a Ready Set or comparable and I couldn't.

Does anyone have any suggestions? Is there a thrird one? I was guessing.

There's another one similar to the ready set, it's a 3 piece set that is double ended so that you could use different sizes of eyelets and you can also double eyelet some. Like a big eyelet with a small one inside, i got it from that Scrapbook Expo that i went to during the summer and it works great and i don't have to fuss with changing little pieces.

When i go home i'll let you all know the name.

I got the Clikit in November, and I love it! I do alot more eyelets than I used to, just because it's MUCH less hassle, and less noise. Works great!

I have the ready set kit and LOVE it! Before, I would always have to set eyelets on my cement front steps (The only solid, non-carpet spot in my apartment). I am MUCH happier with this--it works anywhere.
