The Snappi® Diaper Fastener has revolutionized cloth diapering! This PINLESS diaper fastener offers a practical and reliable way to fasten a cloth diaper and has become the most important cloth diapering accessory in the world.  Over 50 million have sold worldwide.
An EASY to use fastener that offers a PRACTICAL and RELIABLE way to fasten a cloth diaper, replacing the diaper pin. It comes in a variety of colors and is made from a stretchable non-toxic material, which is T-shaped with grips on each end. These grips hook into the diaper fabric to ensure a snug-fitting diaper with enough natural movement for the baby.

Snappi®s available in 9 colors: White, Yellow, Mint, Pink, Pastel Blue, Lilac, Dark Blue, Red and Purple. WARNING:

  Do NOT use a Snappi® fastener on toddlers that have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes. 

ADDED SAFETY FEATURE!
The Snappi® fastener underwent a ‘makeover’ in 2006. The basic shape and function remains the same, the only change being that the rings at the end of each leg have been replaced with a solid piece embossed with the Snappi® logo and a crescent-shaped loop at the end of each leg, which gives the Snappi® this EXTRA SAFETY FEATURE.

When the Snappi® fastener is not in use, fold the loop over the back of the Snappi® end to fit over the teeth of the white grip - see photo above. This acts as a barrier and prevents the sharp teeth from being exposed. These loops are NOT to be pulled on when attaching the Snappi® fastener to the diapers.  When attaching the Snappi®, hold onto the solid part of the tab.NOTE: Keep all Snappi® fasteners out of children’s reach when not in use. 

The benefits of this fastener include:
  • SAFER THAN PINS - no more pinpricks for baby or parent!!
  • RELIABLE - a snug fitting diaper to prevent those dreaded leaks
  • DURABLE - no snaps that can become brittle/rust, nor any velcro to catch all the fluff in the wash!!  At least if your Snappi® fastener needs to be replaced, your expensive All In One diaper is not wasted!!
  • ECONOMICAL – inexpensive and saves parents who wish to cloth diaper from having to purchase expensive diapers as they can be used on flat or prefold cloth diapers
  • HYGIENIC and EASY to use – allows first time parents, grandparents and people with arthritic problems to cloth diaper with ease.   It is as easy as 1 – 2 - 3
This unique product was invented by a father who experienced frustration changing his own child's diapers. A snap solution to easier cloth diapering!

DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Snappi® fasteners must be used responsibly, and need to be used correctly in order to work effectively.1. STRETCH the Snappi® fastener before its first use. The stretching triggers the 'memory' of the Snappi® to return to its original size and in so doing, pulls the diaper together to the middle to allow for a snug fit. This is essential for the Snappi® to work properly. This can be done by holding the Snappi® in the center with one hand and close to the end of the leg with the other hand. Then s-t-r-e-t-c-h a few times (10 or so). As you do this you should feel how the material 'softens' or gets more elastic. Follow this stretching procedure with each leg. The Snappi® is now ready to go! 2. Make sure that the Snappi® is ATTACHED SECURELY. It is important that the Snappi® 'leg' being attached be stretched across the diaper before hooking it into the diaper.  When attaching the Snappi®, hold onto the solid part of the tab.  DO NOT pull on the loops.  So,Hook Left,
Stretch ACROSS and Hook Right,
Stretch DOWN and Hook Center In other words, the Snappi® fastener should go from a ‘T’ shape to a ‘Y’ shape.By following these instructions, the Snappi® should be secure and the diaper will fit snugly. ALWAYS place a cover over the diaper and Snappi® fastener. 
Snappi®s WORK BEST with Snappi® terry cloth diapers, cotton prefolds (Chinese or DSQ), and other cloth diapers with a loose enough weave for the Snappi® to hook into. They DO NOT work well flannel or any other tightly woven diapers, even some hemp diapers. WARNING:
1. ALWAYS use a cover when using a Snappi® fastener with your baby’s diaper.
2. Keep out of children’s reach when not in use!
3. Do NOT use a Snappi® fastener on toddlers that have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes.
4. Do not use your Snappi® for longer than 6 months.
5. Do not leave your Snappi® lying in the sun as it is not UV resistant and can reduce the effectiveness of the Snappi®.CARE: Clean your Snappi® in hot soapy water. Do not launder them with diapers in the washer as this may weaken the grip attachment.CAUTION: Any tear in the Snappi® can lead to separation of a piece, presenting a possible choking hazard.  Do not cut your Snappi® as this could create weak spots in your Snappi®.  Do not pull on the side strips of the Snappi® when attaching it, as this can cause them to break.  These strips serve as a safety feature only, as mentioned above.  Use the flat tabs for leverage.  Inspect your Snappi® before each use and discontinue use immediately if there is any sign of cracking, tearing, breakage or wear of the teeth or any other parts.
The Snappi® fastener is manufactured from FDA approved raw materials, a polyester based polyurethane which is degradable on aging through hydrolysis and/or microbiological attack. It contains NO latex or any other adulterant, dilutent or modifying polymers. The composition is 100% polyurethane. It is made in South Africa.
