Snappis are another really great option to fasten a prefold. Made of a stretchy polyurethane, they have grippers similar to bandage closures (but bent back around, not poking down) which hold the prefold in place without pins.

Size 1, Triple pack, one-size fit most. Fits birth to age 3

Size Toddler, Triple pack, for over age 3, only in grey, green orange.

Usually Size 1 is the only size needed from birth to potty learning, but Size Toddler is also available for those who find they need it.

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.

snappi fastener instructions

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.

Makes cloth diapering easier

These things are so easy to use! Much better than pins in my opinion. The thing I like the most is how easy they make the night time sleepy mama changes. They also come in cute colors and are inexpensive and easy to replace.

Practice makes perfect

Pleasantly surprised by these. It took a few days to get the hang of how to use them properly and how to get a good fit and how to hold them so I couldn’t poke myself... but maybe I over complicate things. However, now I love them and they’re much quicker than snaps and give such a nice, snug fit. My preference now.

Snappi as shower gift

I wrapped a gift certificate with a diaper and the Snappi for a baby shower. New parents had never seen this kind of diaper closer before. Great as an introduction to the new cloth diaper pins.

Great Snappi's

These are my first snappi's I've used and I love them. Before getting these I was just doing a regular tri fold with my prefolds and laying it in the cover. It worked well, but a lot of time the cover would get poopy too. Now with the snappi, there are more time that the cover does not get dirty.


Great alternative to pins!

When I began cloth diapering, about 1 year ago, a friend gave me a few of these to try. I loved them so much that I haven't tried anything else! They are extremely durable, also. She had her 3 Snappi's through 3 kids and then gave them to me. Just last week I had to toss one because it was wearing down in one area and it was going to break, so they last a really long time! As with any option for fastening diapers, you still have to be careful with these because they are sharp. I've never had a problem with it irritating baby through the diaper, as long as there are a couple layers for cushion. I highly recommend!
