    Product Description

    KAM Snap Pliers: High quality pliers set for setting plastic resin snaps (poppers).

    FREE! 320 snaps in multi-colors*

    • Try out your pliers
    • Extra snaps for projects and crafts

    For applying your KAM snaps you need snap pliers. Our pliers are made by KAM specifically for KAM snaps.

    The snap plier kit contains:

    • Pliers
    • Screwdriver, used to change die sizes
    • Metal rod, wider at the pressing end than the preloaded rod, used to apply size 22 snaps
    • 4 cap dies: T-3 (size 14 - preloaded in the pliers), T-8B (size 16), T-5 (size 20), T8A (size 22)
    • Bonus Awl, used to punch holes in your fabric before snapping, if desired
    • Free Snaps! About 160 Caps, 80 sockets, 80 studs in a mix of colors

    The T-5 size cap die is for size 20 snaps. T-5 is the same size as USA size 20 and is the usual size for cloth diapers. You can also use these pliers to apply smaller and larger sizes of KAM snaps. We stock size 20 snaps only.

    KAM is a high quality brand that is the gold standard for snaps in the cloth diaper industry. We sell the KAM HG plier model.KAM pliers and snaps may not be compatible with "Babyville" branded pliers and snaps.

    *Bonus snaps are measured by volume, not by count, and contain a mix of exclusive custom colors not sold in store.


    The manufacturer does not include any instructions.
    How to use Snap Pliers:

    - Setup: Insert the T-5 cap die. Look for the little letters embossed on it -- it is the middle (medium) size black die on the card. The T-5 (size 20) snap caps which we sell fit perfectly in it. Use the screwdriver to loosen and remove the pre-loaded T-3 (size 14) die, pop in the T-5 and tighten. Pliers are now ready to use!

    - Prepunch the hole with the awl (optional) - if you get ripply PUL around your snaps, this can help.

    - Insert your cap prong through the fabric, then position your stud or socket on top of the fabric on that prong.

    - Position pliers so the the snap cap is sitting in the black die.

    - Squeeze pliers to mash the cap point and affix the snap.

    Troubleshooting:

    Snap doesn't click tight together - Be sure to mash down hard enough so that the cap prong becomes a flattened disk. This is particularly important if you are applying snaps to thin layers of fabric. If the center sticks up too high, the snap cannot click together.

    Pliers is pressing unevenly - Tighten screws to reduce side-to-side movement of pliers. Use a thicker layer of fabric behind your snap(s). Switch out the metal pressing rod to use the one with wider pressing tip end (pull off the white rubber tip to see the difference).

    1. easy to use

      Posted by Helen on 24th Aug 2014

      Great pliers, easy to use, worked perfect.


    2. Needs improvement

      Posted by Jackie on 24th Jul 2014

      The rubber heads were damaged when I received the product. It was faster for me to go to a crest store and spend 3$ to buy replacements than it was to send product back for an exchange. It's tedious to change out the metal shanks. It takes about 10 minutes to do so. The screw and all parts have to be perfect or you risk stripping the threads


    3. Pliers are Great!

      Posted by Unknown on 21st Jul 2014

      The pliers are much better than the ones I bought at Joanns! the snaps are not matched sets however, I am not sure I will even use most of them.


    4. Pliers and snaps work great

      Posted by Keely on 19th Jul 2014

      I used the pliers and snaps for the first time on a cloth diaper I made. It was a little awkward to use the pliers the first few snaps, but once I got the hang of it, they were very easy to use. I really love the look and feel of these snaps!


    5. indestructible!

      Posted by Marisela Tome on 27th Jun 2014

      These snaps are awesome, once they're on they aren't coming off! So, make sure and double check you're putting the right snaps in the right spot before you clamp them.

      Also, the pliers are super easy to use, but a few of the screws keep coming kinda loose, so i often have to tighten them so they don't wiggle while clamping and throwing off the snap alignment.


    6. Easier to use than I thought

      Posted by Adele on 7th Jun 2014

      Very simple to use.
      I didn't mind the mixed colors as they went great with the free PUL sample I received!


    7. Easy to use

      Posted by MAFB on 6th Jun 2014

      Although it looks cheap at first this thing works! Easy to use


    8. Don't buy Babyville, get these!

      Posted by MLC on 4th May 2014

      I bought Babyville snaps and pliers first and they were awful. These are like night and day. Cannot recommend enough.


    9. Easiest Snap Installation

      Posted by Elizabeth on 12th Apr 2014

      I've sewn for years & used many snaps. This is by far the easiest snap installation ever. I read the instructions, watched the video & now I have perfect diaper covers. I would have given this product 5 stars, but the free snap assortment was a little strange in color assortment. I realize that it's bulk & says so. I could not make a whole 16 snap cover with the same color. So I used a multicolor PUL & let my imagination go. The cover turned out perfect :)


    10. Great set!

      Posted by Sarah on 10th Apr 2014
