Pronged Stud Tutorial: Stackable KAM Plastic Snaps by I Like Big Buttons! August 19 2020

Pronged studs enable snap stacking. They take the place of a cap and allow your item to be snapped from both sides. While typically used to make a double-sided snap, they can be daisy-chained.

They are available in as few as 25, 100, and 1000 pieces.
