I love your work, Brad!!!
And I cannot wait to get my harness from you.
What is wrong with rivets, again?
We use rivets on our collars, granted, we double up on them, and we have not experienced much of an issue, except on the first collar we made, and that went to my brother.
And that was before we started to design our collars the way we do now. You live and learn.
screws are not always the best way for us because we do not use the thick veg tanned leather, we mainly use latigo. Our leather is not thick enough to use the screws.
We can use them on our leashes, though.
But as long as a rivet is set properly, I do not see an issue. And you can easily tell if a rivet is set properly.
BUT, having said that, we do use four rivets behind our D-Rings instead of two. I do not feel comfortable using just two.
And we don't use crap rivets, either.
