To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Parts seem to be well-made and sturdy. Exactly as described in the listing, so I got what I was expecting and am happy with my purchase. However, no instructions come with the parts. There are four parts total per set, two that go on one part of the project and two to go on the other (for example, the base and the flap of a purse, where the base would get the little turning knob assembly and the flap would get the plate set with the hole in the middle). If you keep in mind the end goal, it's possible with a little 'noodling' to figure out which parts should be attached where and how, but written instructions with pictures would have been very much appreciated. I haven't used mine yet (not at that point in the project yet) but I look forward to trying it out.
Good for lightweight applications. I've used these twist clips for lightweight cloth project bags and they work OK. Be careful during application to avoid bending the ring. If your project is made from heavy material or the lock will get a lot of use, you'll be happier with a more substantial (and expensive) twist lock.
These are terrific! I just started making my own handbags and love the look of twist locks. They are much easier to place than magnets and really bring the quality of my bags from home made to hand made. Highly recommend. These have nice weight and are easy to place in a bag.
