Best way to punch holes in nylon

As the title says, I need to know how to punch holes in a nylon girth without ruining it.
Does anyone have any good suggestions??

Heat up a nail and push it through. It punches a hole easily because it melts the nylon fibers around it so the hole wont fray over time.

I agree with Jumanji.

You will need a nail, a pair of pliers, a small propane torch and a lighter.

Use the pliers to hold the nail.

You don't necessarily have to use a torch a lighter or even a stove that still has the flame um propane stove?? Haha I can't remmeber what they are called but any flame would work

A even better way to put holes in nylon is to use a thin soldering iron. You can get them ultra cheap. They maintain a consistent heat and you just slide them in and slide them out and presto, you have a hole without having to heat up a nail with a torch.

Don't know about you, but I don't like holding a small lighter that long, because the "flick" part of it can get pretty darn hot.

I would expect that the lighter wouldn't give the best heat to heat the nail up with.

I lit a candle, held a long nail over it and used that to make extra holes in a nylon halter. I didn't want to hold a lighter that long (it gets hot!), but the candle worked well.

I've always just taken a nail, held it with pliers, then allowed the nail to heat up over a regular electric stove element set to high. Wait until it's red hot, then puch your holes as desired.
Soldering iron sounds easier though
