Snappi Nappy Fastener


Snappi Nappy Fastener

A Snappi® is the new nappy pin!

Fast, easy and safe, Snappis grip using small teeth and tension to fasten traditional nappies such as prefolds and flats and fitted nappies such as Bubblebubs Bambams and B.I.G's.


  • Safer than pins 
  • Can be done with one hand
  • Creates a snug fitting nappy to prevent leaks
  • Great for fastening 
  • Economical - allows for a less expensive cloth nappy system with regular prefolds and flat nappies

Sizing + Fit

One Size - will fit all babies.

Snappis WORK BEST with nappies with a loose enough weave for it to hook into such as terry cloth nappies, prefolds, and Bubblebubs Bam Bams/ B.I.G's.  They DO NOT work well with tightly woven nappies, or nappies made from delicate fibres.  They are only recommended for nappies where the nappy fabric is thick enough that the teeth on the grips do not touch baby’s skin.

Quick Guides

Before first use

STRETCH the Snappi® fastener before its first use. The stretching triggers the ‘memory’ of the Snappi® to return to its original size, and in doing so, will pull the nappy to the middle to allow for a snug fit. It also makes it more pliable/elastic and therefore easier to use. This is essential for the Snappi® to work properly.

Stretch the Snappi® by holding it in the center with one hand and with your other hand, grab close to the end of one of the arms, avoiding the sharp teeth, and pull. Do not grab the Snappi® by the loops. Repeat this about 10 times for each arm. You will notice the material begin to soften up and become more elastic. Once you do this for each arm your Snappi® Nappy Fastener is ready for use!

How to use a Snappi®

Holding the nappy in place with one hand, attach the Snappi with the other hand in 3 simple easy steps:

  • Attach/hook left
  • Stretch and attach hook right
  • Pull down and attach hook centre.
In other words, the Snappi fastener should go from a ‘T’ shape to a ‘Y’ shape.
To protect the prongs from little hands when not in use you can pull the loop tabs over the top of the prongs to protect them.
