If you just tap the Boingo (or a Snappi) on the diaper without attaching it properly, then it is not on correctly and you won't like them. If you use it properly, it will work correctly. When you get a new Boingo (or Snappi Fastener), you need to break them in properly before using them. Stretch the new Boingo several times hard to stretch and soften up the new Boingo. After it has been initially warmed up like this, it becomes softer and more flexible. Then when you attach it to the diaper, it has some stretch to the material and it is easier to attach properly. Attach it so the teeth are grabbing the fabric. The teeth need to grab the fabric with a slight bit of tension on them to hold in place. If attached properly like this, then they stay put. ALWAYS use a cover over your fastened diaper no matter what brand of fastener you are using. Let me say this again. Do not use fasteners coverless. Use a diaper cover over your fastened diaper at all times. Keep fasteners out of baby's mouth (of course). Store them in something when not in use to keep the teeth safely stored away. A little paper or plastic baggie or a Pink Daisy Mini Bag, or a certain slot or compartment in your diaper bag, for example, will keep them safe and prevent them from getting lost.

Prefolds and Workhorse hold up very well to diaper fastener use. Flat diapers are better with pins than fasteners, but some choose to use fasteners (Boingos or Snappis) with their flats anyhow. Over time it can take a toll on the fabric of the flats since the grabbers do go into the fabric to hold them. To minimize wear on the fabric, always pull the fastener out to release the grippers from the fabric. Do not pull straight up on them, which will yank the grippers out of the fabric and can possibly damage the fabric. Releasing the gripper with a slight outward motion will let it out of the fabric properly and not cause problems. With a little logic and care, fasteners are wonderful and easy to use.

I really like the Boingos. I feel like I can get as good a fit as I do with pins. With the Snappi, It ends up pulling so the top of the diaper bunches up and doesn't make for a smooth front.

I'll first mention what I like about the Boingo. I like how the rubber is thick, and feels substantial. I also like the color choices. I don't think this is a clip to use with a larger baby or toddler though.
I have been cloth diapering for about a year and half, and had only been using Snappis with my prefolds. I decided to try Boingo clips because the bottom clip on the Snappi was constantly coming undone when my son wasn't wearing a diaper cover (which is a lot around the house), and that part of the clip was constantly catching (and ruining) everything it came in contact with. There are a lot of shirts that now have holes in them, and it even has snagged the couch multiple times. I've had the Boingo clips for only about 2 weeks now. I find that they don't hold as well as a Snappi, and tried folding the prefold different ways to see if it would work better with a different fold. It didn't. My son is 2 years old and 30lbs. He's just slightly too big to only use 1 Boingo clip. I tried it with 1 clip a few times, and although the diaper held on much better, and much longer, it was simply too tight around his waist. This being said, I used 2 clips on him. I've tried to adjust it for maximum tension so that it's tight, but the diaper falls off very quickly. I cant seem to find a fold where the extra bulk of the diaper on the sides doesn't slip out of place while he moves, allowing the diaper to loosen. He also figured out how to pull the diaper off with the Boingo by wiggling the diaper from the back. He hasn't done that with the Snappi.
The Boingo is thicker, and slightly harder to stretch, which means that it might hold up longer than a Snappi, but makes it harder on the hands to pull and snap into place. While the Snappi has a pull area to hold on to while snapping into place, the Boingo doesn't. My thought is that a Boingo would be better for a smaller child, where you only need 1 clip, and don't need to stretch it as far.

Response from GMD: Please always use a cover when using either a Boingo or a Snappi. The directions for both products require the use of a cover over them at all times.

I tried using these on my newborn with Green Mountain newborn prefolds. The Boingo fasteners easily detached inside the diaper cover, which worried me because if it had touched the baby's skin then it would have scratched or poked him. The Boingo also seemed to put temporary holes in my prefolds and pull at the threads, which also worried me because I do not want to ruin my diapers. Additionally, I tried these with flour sack towels from Walmart that I am using as flats. The Boingo did not stay on at all, so the fasteners are useless to me now. I will buy a Snappi next time around.

I love these on my 10 month old. I find that sometimes it is hard to stretch a Snappi across his hips, but I can quickly and easily place the Boingos, even with his wiggling around. They do not stay in place as well as a Snappi, but I have mainly found this to be an issue only if he isn't wearing a diaper cover. If he wears a cover, it really hasn't been a problem and is easier than stretching a Snappi across his little pot belly.

Readers please note: Always use a diaper cover over a Boingo or a Snappi Fastener.
