Fixing Snaps on Soft Top

Hs anyone ever attempted to fix broken snaps on the soft top? I have two soft tops, and both of them have had snaps come out of the fabric itself, usually during hot days. Just curious if anyone has been successful in doing so.

My grandfather is a reuphosterer. I've got it made But this Steelhorse top sucks, its still always under warranty but this time I'm gonna send it back, buy a Bestop sailcloth and sell the reissued top on ebay.

There are snap installation tools, some that are a punch and anvil type and some that work like a scissor(not good if the snap is to far from the edge of the material)they are both pretty easy to use, if the old snap pulled out i would recomend reinforcing it on the back side with another piece of material like denim.
check your local hardware store.
It's a snap!
