The prongs are heavily tempered to provide maximum hardness, these also have the added benefit of allowing damaged prongs to snap off rather than bend in order to avoid unnoticed bent prongs from permanently ruining your leatherwork. To ensure the longevity of your tool, always use a soft-headed hammer or mallet (never metal) and gently tap it into your leather work. When removing the prongs from your leatherwork, always pull it straight out; never rock it side to side to loosen it, since this might snap the prongs. It is advised that you wax your prongs with a suitable wax on a regular basis to facilitate removal.
