Please note that the prongs are intended to snap off, rather than bend, in order to avoid undiscovered bent prongs from ruining your leatherwork by leaving uneven stitch holes in your leather creation. Always use a soft-headed hammer or mallet (never a metal one) to softly tap this tool into your leather work. When removing the prongs from your leather, always take it straight out of the leatherwork; if you shift it side to side to loosen it, the prongs may snap. It's a good idea to grease your prongs with wax every now and again to make removal easier.
