Replacing A Handbag Turnclasp

Step 1 Check that the back plate is compatible with the existing front plate.
Step 2 We would unstitch a seam and fix the plate but you might find it easier to cut the lining. This can be very neat if executed correctly.
Step 3 Once you have made a neat cut inside the lining, you will probably see the patch that covers the back of the catch, peel this off.
Step 4 The next step is to lift the legs of the broken clasp (sometimes there are screws instead. Take the backplate off and release the broken clasp.
Step 4 Once the old clasp is off, offer the new one up and mark the holes required for the spikes on the front panel. If you are happy with the position, make the holes (I use a small blade) and push the new clasp on.
Step 4 Put the backplate on (I have pushed the spikes right through the lining and held it all in place with the back plate but its your choice) and bend the spikes over, to trap the backplate (and possibly lining) in position.
Step 4 Patch the backplate with a piece of material or stitch it up (I have had great results with some thin leather and double sided tape on the backplate). Finished

Paul hi, I would like to thank for your amazing response to my non-appearing" tiny " order.

The product you have sent without additional payment being made arrived out of the blue today.

I can only say in this day and age customer service is most often not delivered in the way you have.

Thank you, if the other packages ever turn up I will of course return them.

Finally, my sincerest wish is that your business prospers, and for my part I have already and will continue to sing your praises to any one that will listen.

Kind regards,

Chris B., U.K.
Hi Paul,

Thanks for you excellent service, the replacement leather seat arrived today, and I had it fitted within minutes perfectly.

Thank you again so much, it is nice to know that there are companies out there in the UK that still care about service.

I am off to France next week for the first shoot of the season, an need my shooting stick, as I am just 80.

Best wishes.
