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 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.

Not my favorite

I thought I would love these But honestly they don’t hold very good and I prefer good old fashioned pins instead and wish I had purchased more pins instead.

Perfect for my NB FSTs

I love these fasteners! These are great for FSTs with my newborn. The FSTs don't keep the pointy bits from going through and these are short enough that I can put them over the areas with lots of fabric so there's enough layers to protect my baby (I use a variation on the newborn origami fold).

Wish I'd bought them before

I am currently cloth diapering my third child,and I regret not trying these sooner! They are so handy, and the fact that they are two pieces makes them easier and more versatile than snappi fasteners. Love them!

Give them a few uses

Even with stretching them before use they took a couple days to break in. Now that they’ve been used a few times they seem to be working well and not coming undone. I love that they are made with safe materials and are safer to use that pins.
