What Size Snaps Do I Need?

The size that is right for you will depend on your project, the fabric you are going to use, how many layers you need to go through, and your preference.  The information below are general guidelines.

1)  Size 20 are our most common size and can be used for most general projects like baby diapers and clothing.   These are the most popular size of plastic snaps, have the largest variety of color choices, have a good strong hold, and are a good starter size for most projects.

2)  Size 16 are most commonly used for baby and toddler clothing, pacifier ribbon clips, mama pads, and multiple layers of ribbon.

3)  Our Size 14 have 5.0mm prongs and can be used in most applications where Size 16 snaps are used, like baby and toddler clothing, pacifier ribbon clips, and multiple layers of ribbon.

4)  Size 22 (Size 18 for Back Cap) are for heavy duty applications requiring a stronger grip like tote bags, coats, tarps, and upholstery.

The smaller the size of snaps usually means the shorter the prong and the thinner the fabric they can be used in.  We do carry longer pronged Size 16 and Size 20 (in White or Black) for thicker fabric projects.

If you are unsure which size you need, you may also purchase our KAM Snaps Sample Starter Pack or feel free to ask for help.
