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:
New 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 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.
Please see detailed instructions.
The Snappi Diaper Fasteners are a great way to hold cloth diapers together, once you learn how to use them. Read the directions before using and use the little handles. I had a little difficulty with the vertical fastener, but it does not seem to affect the performance.
Great & easy to work with
I'm pretty new to cloth diapering and I had learned from a few bloggers that Snappies were the way to go. It takes out the guess work! I absolutely love these and would strongly recommend them. Do yourself a favor and break them in as described!!
I love my snappi fasteners.
Wonderful product, our little one is a little tough on them so I've had one break which is why I didn't give it 5 stars but other than that thumbs up.
