The large double cap solid brass rivets are ideal for wet conditions since solid brass will not rust. The large double cap rivet is shown on the far right in the product image of the different rivet sizes. 

The large solid brass double cap rivet is ideal for setting a total combined leather thickness of 20/64 inch to 26/64 inches. An ounce is equivalent of a leather thicknes of 1/64 inch. Therefore a total combined leather thickness of 20 oz to 26 oz will rivet well with this small double cap solid brass rivet.

The rivet post should stick out about 1/16 inch to 1/8 inch above the thickness of your leather before you set your rivet. If your rivet post is too short it will not grab the cap strongly enough. If your rivet post is too long, your rivet will bend and set crooked.

Following is a leather craft video showing how to set rapid rivets and double cap rivets in leather. Although the procedure is the same for different size rivets, the cap size may vary requiring a wider or narrower setter. The mini anvil also makes a great work surface as opposed to using a large homemade anvil shown in the video.
