The Snappi Nappy Fastener has revolutionized cloth nappying!
Snappi's work best with terry cloth flats, cotton prefolds and other cloth nappies with a loose enough weave for the Snappi to hook into. They do not work well with tightly woven nappies.
Note: This product is designed to be operated by persons over the age of 12.
A crescent-shaped loop at the end of each leg.
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 nappy. When attaching the Snappi, hold onto the solid part of the tab.

Snappi® Baby warrants Snappi products against manufacturer's defect for one month after date of purchase. This warranty does not cover the breakage of the loops on the Snappi fasteners. These loops are not to be pulled on when attaching the Snappi fastener to the nappy. When attaching the Snappi, hold onto the solid part of the tab. The loops are designed for the safety feature of the Snappi, as described above, when it is not in use. The thin loop acts as a barrier preventing the sharp teeth from being exposed.
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, will pull the nappy 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 stretch 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 is stretched across the nappy before hooking it into the cloth. When attaching the Snappi, hold onto the solid part of the tab. Do not pull on the loops.

In other words, the Snappi fastener should go from a ‘T’ shape to a ‘Y’ shape.
Clean your Snappi in hot soapy water. Do not launder them with nappies in the wash as this may weaken the grip attachment.
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. Made in South Africa.
