The crimp clasp looks really nice and I followed the directions of inserting my leather cord into the clasp, but I had difficulty squeezing together the middle of the clasp even when applying all my hand strength.

Easy with the right tool
These ends are so pretty and easy to use IF you use the right tool. You have to use narrow chain nose pliers as Karla uses in the video. I love these ends. They are super cute!

Hook and Eye Clasp

Questions and Answers
Q:Can I use this to crimp 1mm leather cord? If not, what brass (preferably antique) crip ends do you stock that would work?
A: I would not recommend using the 4mm crimp ends on 1mm leather, I am afraid that would be too big. I would use crimp ends designed for 1mm leather which can be found on our website or the following: Copper Crimp Hook for 1mm Leather; Item Id: CP3613 Copper Crimp End, 2mm; Item Id: CP3614 Pewter Silver Crimp End Cap, 2mm Hole; Item Id: PW/5062/2/AS Sterling Silver Crimp End Hook, 2mm; Item Id: SS254 Sterling Silver Crimp End Cap, 2 mm; Item Id: SS253 Anti-Tarnish Brass Crimp End Cap, 2.5mm; Item Id: BR1305A
