Determine the desired stud pattern. Use the measuring tape and chalk to equidistantly space andmark studs along the pattern.
Place a stud over the chalk marking. Press the stud prongs through the material you're using so theprongs are exposed on the other (back) side.
Use the pliers to bend the prongs inward, toward the center of the stud. Bend all prongs flush to theback side of the material, ensuring attachment.
Repeat the stud-application process for each marking in the pattern.
