What is the difference between Ring snaps and Spring Snaps?
If you're looking for standard utility snaps, our ring snaps (with or without prong) are the highest quality and will serve your purpose well. If you need something unique, our metal buttons are made with design and fashion in mind.
There are two different types of snaps currently on the market - post-style and prong-style. A post-style snap has a shaft that requires a hole to penetrate the fabric. A prong-style snap has teeth that penetrate through the fabric. For best results, look for industrial quality snaps that are sure to stay secure.
Technically, snap fasteners are mechanical closures consisting of a closure unit and attaching unit. A post-style snap has a shaft that requires a hole to penetrate the fabric. A prong-style snap has teeth that penetrate through the fabric. For best results, look for industrial quality snaps that are sure to stay secure.
Note: Do not mix snap parts among manufactures. Snap fasteners are not interchangeable and are not warranted if used interchangeably. Each manufacturer makes snaps to function in harmony. Adding another manufacturer's snap components into the mix could cause the snaps not to work. Prong-style snaps are best used with loosely woven or knit fabrics. Some of the most common uses for prong-style snaps are:
• Cardigans, shirts, vests
• Lightweight jacket
• Polar fleece garments
• Children's wear
• Western wear
• Home décor
Post-style snaps are best used with densely woven or natural/synthetic fabrics. Some of the most common uses for post-style snaps are:
• Leather jackets
• Heavy outer wear jackets
• Denim jackets/jeans
• RV and Boat covers
