  • YKK SNAD Fasteners

    SKU 6057P
    NEW! Now you can attach snap fastener studs in places where you can't or don't want to drill holes! These "studs" have an aggressive adhesive on the back side and a low profile design. A regular button and socket installed in your fabric cover snaps to these perfectly. Available in several styles: white, black or clear, 25mm or 40mm, flexible or domed. Prepare the surface well for best adhesion.

    We have used SNADS on plexiglass sliding hatches, under the eyebrow on sports fishing boats and several other spots where there wasn't enough room to drill a hole for conventional snap studs. Some people just don't want holes drilled into their boats. SNADS are the perfect solution!

    By the way, that red look on the clear SNAD is simply the paper backing. The SNAD is clear!
