Snap Fasteners

 
Snap Fasteners (also known as Press Studs) are probably the most widely used fastener for canopies and covers in the marine industry.

The system consists of a Cap (or Button), a Socket and a Stud (a Post can be added if a Cloth to Cloth Fastening is needed).

The method of fixing the fasteners is simple:
 
First a small hole is made in the fabric and the shaft of the Cap is pushed through. The Socket is then located over the end of the shaft and held in place by forming the shaft end around the inside of the socket.
 
This is done by using a punch - special tools are best (see below), but if only a few Snap Fastenings are to be fitted a suitable item can usually be found in most tool boxes.
 
With that half of the Fastener complete it is a question of simply clicking the fabric into place over the Stud (which is screwed to the hard surface)

Our Snap Fasteners are made of Nickel Plated Brass.
 
Wise Words:
When using punches, choose a soft-faced hammer preferably one with a dead blow action and a nylon face. This imparts the right sort of blow needed to close eyelets and fasteners.
