Snappis are another really great option to fasten a prefold. Made of a stretchy polyurethane, they have grippers similar to ace bandage closures (but bent back around, not poking down) which hold the prefold in place without pins. I love these. Those moms who like these, really love them a lot! Give one a try. Fastening your prefolds saves you money. How? They help keep poop off the covers because they hold everything in place better than just laying prefold in a cover unfastened. When covers stay clean longer, you don't really need to buy quite so many. Many moms feel that everything works better when the prefold is fastened. Give it a try! Use with woven fabrics such as prefolds, birdseye flat diapers or muslin flats, but not knit fabrics.
Because Snappis have 3 points to hold them, they stay in place and stay secure. You are supposed to use all three fastening points. Thus it makes sense to me (Karen) that the 3-point security of the Snappi is actually safer than other kinds of fasteners that we don't sell. Pinning still gets my vote as the best way to fasten a diaper, but I know not everyone likes to pin (I enjoy it!) so Snappis are the best alternative to pins. Always use a cover over it and do not allow baby to play with or pull at Snappis. CPSIA compliant. Made in South Africa.
Keep Snappis out of the sun since they are not UV resistant. Replace Snappis if you notice wear or after 6 months of use.

Triple Packs, size 1:
Toddler Size: Most people won't need this size, but if it does become needed, it is nice to have this bigger size option. Available in Grey, Green, Orange triple pack only.
Before first use, break in your Snappis. Stretch the Snappi® by holding it in the center with one hand and with your other hand, grab close to the end of one of the arms, avoiding the sharp teeth, and pull. Do not grab the Snappi by the loops. Repeat this about 10 times for each arm. You will notice the material begin to soften up and become more elastic. Once you do this for each arm your Snappi Diaper Fastener is ready for use!
Holding the diaper in place with one hand, attach the Snappi® with the other hand in 3 simple easy steps: Hook Left, Hook Right, Hook Center.

These work well for keeping a diaper on the baby. They have a strong grip and grab into the cotton fairly easily once you get they hang of it. We bought a pack for our newborn and 8 weeks in they've all broken. The rubber by the grip areas tends to break when you're stretching it across the diaper. That being said, I just opened a new pack because they do work well. I just wish that rubber on the edges was a bit thicker and sturdier.
I love these! They are so easy to use for fast diaper attachment without fear of pricking your baby! They are also very durable. I first bought these 5 years ago for my first child, and they lasted through 2 children, and the start of diapering with my third. I still have one from that first pack, but didn't want it to break without a backup. Highly recommend!
I like pinning my prefolds, flats, and snapless workhorses, but at times my pin mojo is lacking. Sometimes it's the squirmy baby, sometimes it's dull points, sometimes it's a too-thickly-folded flat flap. Snappis are quick and easy, and I haven't seen permanent damage like some people claim. I've only poked myself once (which I can't say about my little pin friends) and I find they last longer than the 6 months recommended. My pin-phobic partner loves them, and they are hard to misplace. If you're going for a true throwback vibe, stick with pins, but consider Snappis if you're open to whatever is practical.
