Bone Tipping Instructions
Applying the metal tips to bone ends takes a bit of practice and can be a bit frustrating to start with; which is why we include plastic bones in our corset kits.

That’s it. Very little strength is required compared to trying to cut across the whole bone, which is what seems to be necessary with tin snips.
This process does take some practice and some people have said they resorted to glue for help… throwing the pliers will not help. Try "Jewel" glue or any glue for metal.
It is very important that the tips fit snugly and cannot catch on the fabric when being slid in and out of casings, this can cause snag marks or even worse; they can come off after they are in the casing.
