PhotoEdit

Maybe we could get a photo showing the active (rather than the back) side of the male half of the snap. — President Lethe 02:09, 21 September 2006 (UTC)

I'm about to add some photos of all the different little bits and pieces as well as one type of tool for sticking them together. Nate Wessel (talk) 04:12, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

It would be nice if we found a reputable source about the history as well. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Ben.iza.beast (talkcontribs) 01:00, 12 February 2008 (UTC)

The photo seems OK to me. If not I'd be happy to provide one. Fritz Jörn (talk) 09:57, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Repair?Edit

Does anybody have a clever idea how loose snap fasterners can be made to stick together better? Pls. reply to Fritz at Joern com --Fritz Jörn (talk) 09:57, 30 July 2010 (UTC)

Pull it and install a new one. Nate Wessel (talk) 04:10, 19 December 2014 (UTC)

Baby clothingEdit

Snap fasteners are used a lot on baby clothing for safety reasons: draw cords, laces, zips and buttons all have safety issues. I think it would be worth mentioning this and perhaps, also, how Velcro has seen a fall in usage. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.155.42.138 (talk) 22:06, 2 March 2021 (UTC)
