    Default Hillman "Stainless Steel" Stud Snap allert.

    While installing new carpeting on my Sea Ray, I placed an order on Amazon for 20, #58272, 3/8 inch, Made in USA, ALL STAINLESS STEEL, stud snaps, made by the Hillman Group.
    Upon arrival, I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of the product, so much so,that I immediately placed a second and third order but NOT with the same results.
    Unfortunately the third order was a different story.
    A cheaply packaged product arrived, marked “The Hillman Group”, but of an inferiorquality and NOT entirely made out of 100% stainless steel, but with the screws made out of steel, which would obviously rust in no time at all in the saltwater environment.
    So,BE CAREFUL, INSPECT THE PRODUCT YOU RECEIVED CLOSELY and get your magnet out! This third shipment was a cheap imitation and not worth the money!
    Picture of original (good) Hillman Group box included.
