DIY:Ten Minute Snap Workshop

created on: 07/02/08

You thought the DIY: Ten Minute Grommet Workshop was easy, this makes that look like Rocket Science. Oftentimes you'll come across something that needs a snap added or replaced.  Snaps are...well, a snap.  A snap tool and components are available at fabric stores and they are work fine.

The only trick here is to remember which parts go where.  For simplicity sake, I will call the top of the snap Top A and its connecting piece Top B.  The bottom of the snap or the "male" end will be Bottom A and Bottom B. 

  1.  Poking a hole where the Top of the snap will be inserted.

3.  Now it's time to use the snap tool to squeeze the Top A and Top B to secure the snap.  Top B fits into the black rubber ring and then gets squeezed on to Top A, as shown.

Now we move on to Snap Bottom A and Bottom B

This is what Bottom A and Bottom B look like.  There is also this little red ring that fits into the snap tool (you'll see later).

4.  Place Bottom A on top of Bottom B and squeeze your heart out.  The red ring stays on the snap and you have to pry it off.  There's your snap!!

Wow, thank you that explained a lot to me! Now I can buy some snap pliers for a lot cheaper than getting a snap press. I didn't know how those type of snaps work but now I know. Thank you again.
