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.

       

       

      KAMsnaps Utility Spring Heavy Duty Snaps for Leather

        Utility spring snaps (also called line snaps) on projects that call for a more heavy-duty snap, or with thicker fabric like leather.  This style has the longest prongs of the 3 different metal snaps we carry and are less bulky than the fashion spring style.  Size 20 (12mm - 1/2") is more suited for general use while size 24 (15mm - 5/8") is recommended for heavy-duty applications.

            As is true with any snap, very thin or stretchy fabric like knit and jersey must be reinforced with sturdier material around the area of snaps to avoid ripping.  Note that open-ring metal snaps in general are not recommended for dense material.

            These snaps need to be installed with a KAMsnaps tool (see Required Tools tab). Hammer method is not recommended.

            Warning: Choking hazard - small parts. Loose pieces not for children under 3 years.
