KAMsnaps Open-Ring Metal Snaps for Children Baby Toddler Clothes Onesies


Open-ring grip snaps are commonly used on baby/children's clothing and other basic crafting projects with thinner types of material (which should be reinforced with twill or grosgrain ribbon to avoid possible tearing). Because the "teeth" are short and each one needs to be able to self-pierce through the fabric, these are not suited for tough, thick or dense material. Size 14 (9mm - 3/8") has shorter teeth than size 16 (10mm - 7/16").


    KAM Fashion Spring Decorative Metal Snaps for Bracelets Wallets


      Fashion spring snaps for a more visually appealing decorative touch. Size 14 (9mm - 3/8") for light-weight applications, size 20 (12mm - 1/2") for general use, and size 24 (15mm - 5/8") for thicker material. Similar to utility spring snaps below -- visual appeal is the main difference.
