Snappi Diaper Fasteners are an EASY way to FASTEN Cloth Diapers!

If the thought of using diaper pins for cloth diapers makes you a bit squeamish, you will be very excited about this safe, hygienic and easy-to-use Diaper Fastener. Available in a broad array of colors, this stretchy non-toxic diaper fastener is designed in a T-shape, bearing gripper hooks on each end. The grippers will "grab" the back "wings" of your baby's prefold diapers, securing them firmly to the diaper's front panel.

Though many of today's cloth diapers do not require any kind of diaper pins/cloth diaper fasteners, the Snappi Diaper Fastener is certainly a worry free way to fit your baby's diapers to them snuggly, allowing them enough natural movement to be comfortable.

Snappi work the best with prefold cloth diapers; we have found that terry cloth diapers and any other style of cloth diaper with a loose weave works well also, however, they do not work with the tightly woven flannel diapers.

Preparing your Fastener for Use.

When you receive your Fastener, it is essential you spend some time STRETCHING it before using it. Stretching the fastener loosens it up a bit so it isn't so stiff, plus the stretching triggers a sort of "memory" for the Snappi to recognize how far it can stretch and still return to its original size.

Stretch by holding it in the center with one hand and with your other hand, grab close to the end of one of the legs and pull. Do not grab Snappi Diaper Fastener by the rings. Repeat this about 10 times for each "leg". You will notice the material begin to soften up and become more elastic. Once you do this for each leg your fastener is ready for use!

How to Secure a Cloth Diaper.

The Snappi Diaper Fastener is easy to use, but if you ask most people they will tell you it took a few tries to get it right, not unlike learning how to use diaper pins for cloth diapers for the first time, but without the added concern of poking baby! Follow these simple instructions and you'll get the hang of it in no time at all!

    How to use a Diaper Fastener
  • Pull the front panel of the cloth diaper up, through baby's legs and press it against baby's stomach.
  • Then, grab the left or right edge of your baby's prefold cloth diaper, pull it around your baby to meet the front cloth diaper panel, and press in the grippers of the matching leg into the fabric wing; you feel it sort of "hook".
  • Now grab the opposite edge of your baby's cloth diaper, bring it around baby and press it against the front cotton panel. Holding the remaining top leg, pull it across the front cotton panel to hook into the opposite cloth diaper wing. Again, you should feel the grippers "lock" into the fabric.
  • You can see the top of the "T" is in place - holding the left and right cloth diaper wings. The next step secures the fastener and diaper.
  • The final step to secure your baby's cotton prefold diapers is to press down on both the left and right "hook" ends of the "T" and pull the third and final leg of the fastener down to hook in the center of the front cotton panel. Your "T" now more closely resembles a "Y".

Again, you will want to practice this a few times, but once you've got the Snappi Diaper Fastener locked in place it isn't going anywhere; it will hold the diaper nice and snug and your baby will not be able to undo it. At this point you can pull on a Bummis Whisper Pant, or just about any other style of cloth diaper cover.

A few warnings: Though you should not have to worry about safety if correctly affixed to your baby's diaper, do not need to leave them laying about where baby can get his/her hands on them; they are not toys and the gripper ends could hurt baby if unattended. The manufacturer recommends replacing the diaper fastener every 6 months and not leave them lying in the sun as they are not UV resistant and it can reduce the effectiveness of the Fastener. Finally, if for any reason your fastener develops a tear, has a loose piece, or shows any sign of cracking, it needs to be replaced.

Easy to care:simply wash in hot, soapy water and leave to dry. Try to not launder them with your cloth diapers as the tumbling may weaken the grip attachment.

Safe for baby and parent, easy to use

Put simply, snappis are great! They're quick to put on, easy to take off, and minimal (no?) risk of blood (unlike traditional diaper pins). I was gifted some traditional diaper pins, and poked myself once when I was distracted (sleepy parent, happens easily!). Was very happy it was me and not my baby, and counted the days until the snappis arrived.

We bought our first Snappis and my husband couldn't wait to try them out. He got a good fit the first try. I am a bit concerned about wear and tear on our Clotheez prefolds, but for now we use them on FSTs.

A must have for cloth diapering
Reviewed by: (Verified Buyer)  from State College, PA. on 10/10/2015
I first learned about these when I was changing a child's diaper at daycare (I am an early childhood educator) and I knew then and there that I would purchase them for my own child, when he/she came. I honestly cannot live without Snappi's! What did mothers do before Snappi's entered the market?! They are a must with prefolds and flat cloth diapering- they are much safer than using clothes pins and they fasten so much faster! Will purchase size 2 when I need them.
