So let's take a closer look On one side you can see the black wax tip and you use it to actually pick up the rhinestones quite easily when you flip it over you see this chrome tip now this step is used to actually secure the flat backs in place so it's kinda like a 2 in 1 tool and as an added bonus we have this adaptive tool and what you do is you open up the chrome tip like so, stick this in there, close it backup. This tip is used to secure down smaller flat backs sizes ss9 to ss5. So let's put that aside and let's go ahead and use this tool and see how it works.
