Snappi Diaper Fasteners

76 reviews

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.

Stock Status: In stock as listed. Usually ships the same or next business day.

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.

Snappies make cloth diapering a cinch!

We’ve cloth diapered 3 babies and snappies made it possible. I can’t imagine doing it with pins or spending double or more on fitted diapers. The snappies are easy to use (even my husband can do it ;) and they keep the diaper snug and in place. Highly recommend the prefold/thirsty duo/snappies system. Super cost effective and it works so well!

Easy To Use

These fasteners are very easy to use once they have been stretched before use. I like having the option of different colors.

Not for thin cloth diapers

I didn’t like using safety pins for my baby as she got hurt while making her wear the diaper.. she’s very active so though of buying these snappies... but the snappy teeth was digging in her skin... I don’t want her to get hurt... I think won’t be using it....

Thank you for your review. Yes, always be careful when using sharp diaper fasteners to make sure the teeth of the fastener are being used in enough fabric to keep away from baby's skin. We are not sure what diapers were used as the order only contained the fasteners and covers, but with prefolds and Workhorse Fitted diapers they usually work fine.
