I Like Big Buttons! How To Apply KAM Plastic Snaps With Hand Pliers August 28 2017

How To Apply KAM Plastic Snaps With Hand Pliers Slideshow:

OR

How To Apply KAM Plastic Snaps With Hand Pliers Video:

Today I spent the day laying out a photo slideshow of how to apply KAM plastic snaps with hand pliers. Installing snaps is, well, a SNAP to do! Check out how simple it is below.

Supplies:

 

1. Use the Awl to poke a hole where you want to install the KAM plastic snap.

2. Press the plastic snap Cap through the hole created by the Awl. The prong of the Cap will be visible.

3. Settle the Socket over the prong shaft.

4. Use the Hand Pliers to install the Cap and Socket together.

5. The Cap should be securely nestled in the die before you apply pressure. I am using Size 20 snaps so the T5 die is installed. Each size of snap has a correlating die.

6. Apply firm hand pressure. The rubber head should bulge slightly as pictured.

7. The prong of the Cap is now flattened. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket together.

8. Repeat steps to create the Stud side of the snap. Create a hole with the Awl and insert the Cap. The prong of the Cap will be visible.

9. Settle the Stud over the prong shaft.

9. Use the Hand Pliers to install the Cap and Stud together.

10. Apply firm hand pressure. The rubber stopper should bulge slightly.

11. The prong of the Cap is now flattened. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Stud together.

12. Now simply press the snaps sides together.

13. You have created a plastic snap that is durable, functional, and adds a colorful finish to your project.

 

14. Both sides of your snap have a clean finished look.

15. Happy Snapping!!!

Friday Fun Facts - The Anatomy Of A KAM Plastic Snap July 28 2017

KAM plastic snaps are wonderful. They are a SNAP to install and much easier and durable than a standard metal snap or sewable button.  They come in a multitude of colors and sizes.  Which one is right for you?

Here is a simple tutorial on the anatomy of a plastic snap set. There are 4 parts to a set:

  • 2 Caps (Before installation they resemble a tack with a Round, Heart, or Star shaped head. They give a neat finished look to your snap.)
  • 1 Socket (The female part with the larger raised circle that the stud (male part) fits into)
  • 1 Stud (The male part with the smaller raised circle that fits inside the socket (female part))

SIZE 20:

  • Size 20 (0.5" - 12.4 mm) snaps can be used for most general projects like baby diapers and clothing. They are our most popular plastic snap size, have the largest color variety, and have a good strong hold. We carry them in all 130 colors and clear.
  • Standard Size 20 snaps have a 5.6mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • We also offer Long Prong Size 20 (0.5" - 12.4 mm) in a rainbow of colors. They are great for embroidered key fobs using Marine or Glitter Vinyl as well as other projects where you need just a little more prong length. Long Prong Size 20 snaps have a 6.2mm prong length.

 SIZE 16:

  • Size 16 (0.4" - 10.2 mm) snaps are most commonly used for baby and toddler clothing, pacifier clips, mama pads, and small crafts. We carry them in our first 60 ("B") colors and clear.
  • Size 16 snaps have a 4.2mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 16 Socket and Stud are less noticeably different. Many first time users don't immediately see the distinction. The Socket's raised circle is the larger of the two pictured, and the Stud's raised circle is smaller and inserts into the Socket (female) side.

SIZE 14:

  • Our Size 14 (0.35" - 9.7 mm) snaps can be used in most applications where Size 16 snaps are used. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Our Size 14 snaps have a 5.0mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • As with the Size 16, the Size 14 Socket and Stud are less noticeably different. The Socket's circle is the larger of the two pictured.  The Stud's circle is smaller and inserts into the Socket (female) side. Size 16 and Size 14 Sockets and Studs are the same; only the cap differs.

SIZE 19:

  • Size 19 (0.475" - 12 mm) snaps are used for heavy duty applications requiring a strong grip. They are often used with tote bags, coats, tarps, and upholstery. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Size 19 snaps have a 6.9mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 19 Socket and Studs are larger, but similar in appearance to Size 20 Sockets and Studs.

SIZE 22:

  • Size 22 (0.55" - 14.1 mm) snaps are used for heavy duty applications requiring a strong grip. They are often used with tote bags, coats, tarps, and upholstery. We carry them in White and Black at this time.
  • Size 22 snaps have a 6.9mm prong length. Prong length refers to the length of the shaft on the backside of the Cap. When formed, the prong will compress and form a 'mushroom' shape to hold the Cap and Socket or Stud together.
  • The Size 22 Socket and Studs are larger, but similar in appearance to Size 20 Sockets and Studs.

(In the pictures, I used Size 16 but found that it did not hold well and had to replace them with Size 20.)

I Like Big Buttons! Friday Fun Facts: How We Prepare Our Plastic Snaps And Why June 30 2017

For all our new friends and followers of I Like Big Buttons!, it seemed like a great time to introduce you to our amazing Plastic Snaps!!!  For those of you who have been with us for a long time, here is a refresher.

We carry a variety of package deals for our snaps from 10 sets, 25 sets, 100 sets up to thousands of KAM snaps with and without pliers or professional press all at a great price. We have a listing for just about everyone at the price range and quantity you desire.

Unlike other vendors, our KAM plastic snaps are optically counted.  This means every cap, socket, and stud is counted, and the amount purchase is assured to be at or above the purchased quantity (we allow overcounts, but not undercounts).  Plastic snap batches can vary by 5% or more in weight (even between batches of the same color), so if your vendor is weighing them, you may not be getting what you paid for.

25 packs sets came to be largely for cloth diapers.  Most customers that replace Velcro on cloth diapers with snaps have numerous diapers in varying colors.  Many found purchasing 100 of each color wasteful, as they ended up with 75% of their snaps left over.

We provide the best of both worlds, smaller packs to those that want greater variety and larger packs for those looking to use snaps in bulk.

Some of these reasons we offer these great options include:

*A large demand from customers for just 25 snaps to convert or complete a single diaper.

*An equally large demand for “just a sampling of every color”, which gave birth to our sets of 10 and Starter Packs.

* More compact, informational packaging that includes the name, quantity, prong length, and instructions about which Die and Rod to use.

* We also offer individual parts in quantities of 100 and 1000 in all of KAM Plastic Snaps 130+ colors.

If you aren't sure how to jump into plastic snaps, we also carry starter packs including multi-packs of 10 or 25 sets of snaps.  If you are new to snapping, we have starter packs with plastic snap pliers, awl, and an instructional DVD.  These Starter Packs are a great way to get addicted :).  We have 18 preset themes including Rainbow Spectrum, Pastel Spectrum, Vibrant Boy, Vibrant Girl, Patriotic, Military, and many others. 

Check out our convenient Starter Packs:
