How to Install a Rivet-On Nameplate

  1. Place the nameplate on the collar in the location you would like to install it.
  2. Mark the nameplate rivet hole positions.
  3. Punch holes in the collar where you made the nameplate hole marks with a hammer and punch, leather punch or drill. Use a durable surface during installation to prevent damages.
  4. For nylon collars, burn the edges of the holes to remove frayed strands.
  5. Push the rivet posts through the holes in the collar from the backside of the collar.
  6. Then push the rivet posts through your rivet-on nameplate and attach the provided rivet caps.
  7. Tap the rivet caps onto the rivet posts with a hammer until the caps flatten.

  1. I have 5 brand new collars and I’ve purchased name plates for both. An issue with my phone caused me to get another number. How can I effectively and neatly removed these name plates? Can they be removed. I’d hate to go and purchase 5 new ones, but I need/want the correct number on the collars. By-the-way, they are all chipped too.

    • Hi Melissa,
      We use a wire cutter to dig around the rivet caps until we are able to pry them up. Once you do this on both sides the nameplate will come off. If these were dogIDs collars you can send in the collar with your new nameplate order and we can remove and replace with the new nameplates!
