DIRECTIONS FOR USE
Snappi fasteners must be used responsibly, and need to be used correctly in order to work effectively. 

1. STRETCH the Snappi fastener before its first use. The stretching triggers the 'memory' of the Snappi to return to its original size, and in so doing, pulls the diaper together to the middle to allow for a snug fit. This is essential for the Snappi to work properly. This can be done by holding the Snappi in the center with one hand, and close to the end of the leg with the other hand. Then s-t-r-e-t-c-h a few times (10 or so). As you do this you should feel how the material 'softens' or gets more elastic. Follow this stretching procedure with each leg. The Snappi is now ready to go!

2. Make sure that the Snappi is ATTACHED SECURELY. It is important that the Snappi 'leg' being attached be stretched across the diaper before hooking it into the diaper.  When attaching the Snappi, hold onto the solid part of the tab.  DO NOT pull on the loopsSo,

Hook Left,
Stretch ACROSS and Hook Right,
Stretch DOWN and Hook Center

In other words, the Snappi fastener should go from a T shape to a Y shape.

By following these instructions, the Snappi should be secure and the diaper will fit snugly. ALWAYS place a cover over the diaper and Snappi fastener.

Snappis WORK BEST with terry cloth diapers, cotton prefolds, and other cloth diapers with a loose enough weave for the Snappi to hook into. They DO NOT work well with tightly woven diapers.

WARNING
1. ALWAYS use a cover when using a Snappi fastener with your baby's diaper.
2. Keep out of children's reach when not in use!
3. Do NOT use a Snappi fastener on toddlers that have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes.
4. Do not use your Snappi for longer than 6 months.
5. Do not leave your Snappi lying in the sun as it is not UV resistant and can reduce the effectiveness of the Snappi.

CARE
Clean your Snappi in hot soapy water. Do not launder them with diapers in the washer as this may weaken the grip attachment.

CAUTION
Any tear in the Snappi can lead to separation of a piece, presenting a possible choking hazard.  Do not cut your Snappi as this could create weak spots in your Snappi.  Do not pull on the side strips of the Snappi when attaching it, as this can cause them to break.  These strips serve as a safety feature only, as mentioned above.  Use the flat tabs for leverage.  Inspect your Snappi before each use and discontinue use immediately if there is any sign of cracking, tearing, breakage or wear of the teeth or any other parts.

WARRANTY 
Snappi Baby warrants Snappi products against manufacturer's defect for one month after date of purchase.  This warranty includes replacement of the product, if the broken product is returned to Snappi Baby with proof of purchase, and it is determined to Snappi Baby's satisfaction, that the breakage or defect was not caused by improper use of the product.  This warranty does NOT cover the breakage of the loops on the Snappi fasteners.  These loops are NOT to be pulled on when attaching the Snappi fastener to the diapers.  When attaching the Snappi, hold onto the solid part of the tab.  The loops are designed for the safety feature of the Snappi, as described above, when it is not in use.  The thin loop acts as a barrier preventing the sharp teeth from being exposed.


SIZING
After endless requests from Snappi users, we introduced a bigger Snappi in 2007 - the Size 2 Snappi, which is better suited for larger babies and young toddlers.  It is longer across the top T of the Snappi. Once stretched correctly, the Snappi fastener gives an additonal 4" stretch across the width than the Size 1 Snappi. It comfortably fits up to a 30" waist.  It is only available in white.  Although this depends largely on the size and shape of the baby or toddler, we recommend using the Size 2 Snappi for children aged 16 months+

WARNING:  Do NOT use a Snappi fastener on toddlers who have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes.

Don't bother with Size 1
We love Snappies, but don't even bother ordering the smaller size. The larger size (Size 2) works for smaller babies and larger, but the smaller Snappies only work on smaller babies so you can't use them once your child outgrows them. Invest in the larger ones so you can use them for the duration of your diapering. (If you just have to order both sizes I recommend buying all your smaller Snappies in one color and all your larger in another. That way you will always know if you are reaching for a large or small Snappi and not drive yourself crazy with a rainbow of colors and sizes like we did.)

Functional and fun
The Snappi works perfectly on our fitted diapers. We also plan to use it for prefolds when our new baby is born in early March-ish. Bonus: my toddler loves to play with the Snappi, which he calls "Spikeys," while I'm changing his diaper!

Hooray for Technology!
I've never had to use diaper pins, but according to my mom these are much easier! I've never had a problem with them coming off, even though the bottom snap always comes loose. My only real complaint is that they seem small - we use a toddler size with our 4 month old and it's much easier to work with than the infant size. Although now that I read the instructions perhaps I just need to stretch them more...whoops!

Love these
I used some prefolds for my daughter when she will still under 16 lbs and I loved using the snappis with them! They work great and are so easy to use! A must for anyone using prefolds.

Love/Hate relationship with the snappi
These are awesome at "pinning" a prefold and hold the diaper tightly and well. However, they break too easily. I use a lot of different kinds of diapers, so I'm not using my snappis every change. My son is only 4 mo old and we have already broken 3 snappis! The part breaking is the little bit you grab to pull the snappi tight, so it doesn't affect the functionality, but is harder to get a good fit. If they didn't break so easily, I'd give them 5+ stars-can't imagine pinning like my mother did!

Perfect for prefolds
Although I don't use prefolds that often, I wouldn't use pins. Snapi's are a great invention & I'm glad I have them around. Easy to use :)

Snappi
Makes cloth diapering so easy. I'm still using the the original 3 Snappis I purchased over a year ago. So thankful for Snappis- can't even imagine having to diaper a toddler with pins!

Not really a fan
I used snappis and prefolds when my son was a newborn and they were ok then but once he started getting bigger and moving they really became too much work. I am giving 3 stars simply because they are much better than the alternative of using pins and would make for a low-cost diapering option. I really like pockets and aio's better than trying to get a good fit with a prefold and cover.

Why use pins?
Don't be fulled by pre-fold diapers systems when they tell you you don't need anything to hold your folded diaper together aside from the cover. Why use pins to do that? Snappi is a genius idea, much easier then put a diaper on a baby and trying to use the cover to keep the diaper on. Tried that. Use a snappi!

Love it!
I really like the snappi. this has made prefolds an option for our family. i don't think we would have chosen PF if we had to use pins. my only complaint is that they don't hold up for very long. after 4 months all of our snappies had the plastic 'pull' part break. We can still use them, but the part that saves your hands from getting scratched is gone. For the price it could use an upgrade in durability, but this does not make me want to use pins.

Great alternative to pinning
Before I learned how to pin correctly all I used were snappis. I love them. They are super easy to use! My husband snappis diapers on all the time!

snappi
I used snappis with pre-folds with my first son and I loved them. They had a bit of a learning curve for my husband and for my second child I found it easier to forgo the snappi but when you just start out it is a big help holding that diaper together.

If you want to use prefolds, flats, semi-fitteds, this is the way to go for closure! I used prefolds when my son was small with pull on covers. Snappis worked great and so much less stressful than pins.
