We recently had a fundraiser through the sale of KAMsnaps pliers to raise money to donate to The Salvation Army to help with Oklahoma tornado relief. Our goal was to raise at least $500. Because of your support, we raised more than double that! Thank you for helping us make a small difference.

Standard size 20 plastic KAM snaps are commonly used on most products, including diapers. We have long-prong versions for materials which are very thick, such as Indian prefolds. For those materials which are fairly thin, like 2-3 layers of t-shirt material, we now have short-prong caps in white. Our short-prong size 20 snaps have the same length as our regular size 16 snaps. The only difference is that being size 20, the caps have a wider diameter than the size 16.
How do you know when you need shorter prongs? After you've installed your snaps, if the 2 sides are not clicking closed properly, then most likely the fabric is too thin for your length of snap. That's because there is too much "leftover" prong after it has been smushed down so it gets in the way when the socket and stud try to attach. The solution is to either thicken up your fabric or to use shorter prongs so that the amount of "leftover" prong after it has been smushed is reduced.
We have a video which illustrates this:
These FDA-approved, food-grade silicone adapter rings make it a cinch to attach a ribbon holder to any button-style baby pacifier by MAM, NUK, or other brands. Available here. We also carry a full line of metal and plastic pacifier clip holders that can be used together with the rings.

New colors in heart and star shaped plastic KAM snaps are available here. Hearts use the same die as regular round size 20 snaps. Stars are slightly larger and require a star die for pliers. There is also a star die for presses but some users are able to get the stars to fit their regular round size 20 cap die as well.
