Any recommended places to get directional snaps?
Anybody sell them that come as a package w/cap, socket & stud?
Does it require a special tool other than the normal anvil set up for line 24 snaps?

They may need a special die punch.
Directionals aren't a necessity. But they are nice to use an offer that extra bit of security to the attachment point. Don't feel like you HAVE to use them but if you do, good stuff
I use Line 24s and DOT fasteners (Hard snap). Haven't gotten into using directionals yet. I do use holsters that have directional snaps on them.

- You will have to buy the pieces separately. Of you are using them in belt loops, you can get away with the shorter .240 posts. Be sure to get the longer ones if you plan to go through more than one layer of leather. Also, you can use normal caps that don't say "Pull the Dot" if you prefer the plain look (which is my personal preference).
- You can get a Pres-N-Snap Installation Tool for a more economical way to install your snaps, but you will also have to buy dies made specifically for directional snaps. The dies that work with this model don't put a dot in the cap like a professional snap press will, so this is one more reason to use standard caps instead of the Pull the Dot variety.
