I have had this snap press for over 3 years and it always works exactly the way it should. The only time I have ever had any trouble was when I didn't have a secure enough placement of the snap. I am so glad I took the time to make this purchase. It is absolutely worth the money.

I had used sew on snaps and Velcro on my projects for years and they never looked professional and they were a pain. The kamsnaps applied with the pliers are easy and give a finished look to my projects. I look for excuses to use them all the time!

I bought these to use with diapers and they were so much cheaper than sending 30+ diapers out for conversion. Now that we are past diaper stage I have kept them around and found tons of craft uses for them, I love Pinterest and anything that calls for sewing on Velcro or zippers gets snaps now. I have even used them to make my tiny (4th percentile) daughter's clothes have smaller waists. Then just unsnap as she grows! If I do a lot of snaps in one day my arm will be sore the next day, but well worth the extra muscle.

These pliers made it easy to get started with KAM snaps. They don't take up a lot of room and store easily. It took a couple applications for me to get the hang of them and if I am applying snaps to something thick I have my husband give them a good squeeze. If you are snap curious I say start with these.

These are great for small projects. They work best if you have strong hands, or have a firm surface to press down on when you are applying the snaps. I am planning to get a press soon because I have started to apply more than 20 snaps at a time and it's getting tiring!

I bought this 3 years ago and it keeps on ticking. I have had to replace parts (some lost by children) and I was not a fan of the original screws (for me, they wouldn't stay in) but I was able to replace them at the hardware store, but they have done their job well and will continue to do so. Plus I love the fact that I can fix these, which for me speaks to quality in a disposable world. I am not a professional diaper maker so I don't need a press. However, I have used this to add snaps to so many things and they have been a very good investment.

Easy to use, once you get the hang of them. It's important to have the snaps lined up exactly or the prong squishes sideways. Once you get the hang of that, though, they work great!

This is a great product! I have used my snaps in so many different projects, but the most often use is in the clothing I make for my baby grandson. My daughter much prefers snaps over buttonholes for dressing the little wiggle worm ;). The pliers do make your hands tired after using multiple times, but work so well--I have only had one snap break in all the applications I've done.

I've had these pliers for about three years now. Every once in a while, I have a little bit of trouble getting them to clamp down all the way. I'm not sure why. It didn't start until about a year ago, so maybe they're just getting a little worn.
They've definitely been worth the purchase price, though. :)

REPLY FROM KAMSNAPS: Thank you for your review! The parts on the pliers do wear down over time and will need periodic replacing. Parts are available in the Dies & Parts section of our site.

I actually purchased the "seconds quality" set of pliers and really couldn't see a difference at all. At one point I had a screw pop loose, so I simply went to the hardware store and popped a new one in. Easy fix. I know I could have contacted KAMsnaps for a solution because they have epic customer service, but I didn't mind because I knew it was likely to be the way I was snapping. I would definitely purchase another pair of pliers if I needed them!

Love my snap pliers. Got them on sale & used them for the first time this fall to make interchangeable appliqués for a jumper for my daughter. I didn't even read the directions. Just fiddled around with them & a scrap piece of fabric. Simple to use & I was impressed with how little pressure they actually require to compress the post!

I'd be lost without my snap pliers! These work really well. But if you're doing a big project (like 4 dozen diapers) after a while your hand starts to get crampy.
But for quick projects (adding a few snaps) you can't beat this for the price

I bought these pliers about a year ago and although I like them and their ease of use I don't feel like they work at well as the press does. I have found that when using the pliers the snaps don't look at professional and tend to not snap as well. This could be due to user error though. I am very happy with my purchase and would recommend them to someone that doesn't need to use it all the time. If this is something you tihnk you will use a lot I would go to the press. I find it easier and more professional looking.

My only complaint is that I don't have good hand strength so I had to have my husband go over them and after about 10 snaps back to back my hand started to hurt. Otherwise it was effortless. Really good product.

I love these pliers, one trick I recommend is to use fingernail clippers to trim a cap to the end of the socket or stud before using them though to save your hands some effort :) the dies are super easy to change and the pliers have held up through about 1500 snaps so far for me. Still going strong! And removing snaps with them is a breeze too :)

Have these pliers for placing snaps on the legs of children's clothing but find many other uses for them as well {repairing clothing, pet bandanas, pacifier/toy leashes, bibs, fabric cuffs/bracelets just to name a few}. I thought the pliers might be awkward to use at first but I was very wrong - it's very easy to get perfect snap placement the first time. Easy on the budget too! Thanks KAM!

I have had my snap pliers for two years and I love them. They are so easy to use, even my hubby has helped me put snaps on my diapers. They have helped me put snaps on fitteds and convert my diapers from velcro to fitted. The tutorial makes it so easy and the shipping is fast.

AMAZING! Better price than in the stores and better quality/ease of use/ customer service! Got the hang of it after the first one, these are sooooo easy to use and work so well with the snaps! I made cloth diapers for my son with these snaps and they were so much easier than the metal hammer kind I initially tried. There are tons of really detailed tutorials online if you do run into a problem. Also, I kept a craft scalpel on hand while putting in the snaps; in the event an error is made the scalpel can shave a bit of the cap off so it closes better if you miss, or can cut off the inner post very easily to remove and reapply a new snap. I also recieved my order very fast. Thanks so much!

I ordered these and I loved them after I get used to. There is definitely a learning curve. I have had it at least a year and I couldn't imagine not having it!
I tend to get broken snaps more than I would like or it would get a full 5 stars. I think I'm going to upgrade to a press.

I purchased the KAMsnaps pliers last year after doing a bunch of research on diaper making websites and most folks recommended them. I purchased one that was considered a "second" for a lower price. All it needed was a little oil because it was squeaky and worth saving a little money. I use them often enough now that I sell diapers/cloth pads/bibs that I plan to upgrade to a larger snap press soon!

I bought a pair of pliers with snaps. I have used it and I am very pleased with the results! The pilers are easy to use and light weight. I thought they "looked" heavy in the picture, but they are not. The dies are easy to switch and use.

I would recommend upgrading to a 1st class awl though. I didn't, but I wish I had. There was rust on the tip of the awl which made a stain on the fabric when I used it. Of course this was covered by the snaps so it didn't show. The tip wasn't smooth either due to the rust. That made it difficult to "punch" through the fabric. I was a bit sad about it, until my husband said i could rub the tip with a bit of fine sandpaper. It worked! It's smooth now. But I still recommend 1st class.

I started out with ordinary pliers for metal snaps from Jo-Ann and had so much trouble with them. These pliers are so simple to use and work great. The only issue, and it's a minor one is that you don't have a lot of clearance if your snaps have to be far in from the edge of the fabric, but otherwise these are great.

I just got the pliers and snaps a few days ago. KAM snaps has been great! I ordered before a 3 day weekend and my order was sent out before the weekend. I was not expecting my pliers and snaps to come until late the next week. I ended up emailing to find out when it had been shipped so I could know when to check with my apt office to pick them up. They ended up being delivered earlier in the week and had been at the office for a few days! Wow! So quick and didn't even know to expect them! I tried them out that night and they are so easy to use. I was sent to KAM snaps by a message forum and I am so glad I went with them. They are easy to use, work great and a great price. Thanks KAM Snaps.

I purchased a snap pliers as a "last resort" when I received a bunch of used cloth diapers that ended up having un-usable Velcro. I couldn't afford to send them off to be professionally snap-converted, so I decided to do my best, order a pliers and convert them myself. The KAM snap pliers saved my diapers! It was so easy to use, and the snaps on the diapers turned out fantastic. I couldn't be more happy with my purchase.

I was a little uncertain about trying the Kam snap pliers at first. I only have one hand and in the past I was unable to use *Other* grommet pliers. I finally decided to try Kam snaps pliers as they were the most affordable for me at this time. I was completely surprised at how easy the snaps are to apply! They centered easy and not much pressure was needed to set them. I've only used it a couple of times but I am looking forward to making lots of clothing and diapers and such to use them with!

Since I received my pliers I have been plotting all sorts of projects to add snaps to! These little pliers are a wonder and do the trick nicely. Read the instructions completely more than once-it is very important to seat the snap properly- if you don't the prong won't compress fully and your snaps will either fall off or just never click together right. I also recommend being very very very sure before you apply a snap as these little buggers are not easy to get off- as warned in the instructions...My only complaint is that these are not very fast- if you have a large project your hand will likely get tired. Also,the 'throat' does not allow you to apply snaps very far into a piece of fabric if you know what mean. Still,for small projects they are an amazing value-I purchased the cosmetic defect sale priced pliers and they were very very easy to fix. I also got loads of freebies! Awesome deal:)
Now I want a press for larger projects!

I use these pliers and am quite impressed at how easy they are to use. At first I was a bit afraid that they would be too hard to do and I would just mess everything up. Not so, I was worried over nothing.
The only thing that I don't like about the pliers is that I have problems with my hands and they can aggravate my situation if I try to apply too many snaps in one sitting.

I bought these pliers for converting my BumGenius 3.0 diapers from aplix to snaps. I was concerened there wouldn't be enough clearance for the fabric, but they handled it nicely! I ended up putting a die cap one size larger on for the snaps at the bottom row. With all the extra fabric, this made sure the snap was truly centered and fixed the issue of "lopsided" pressed snaps. It DOES take some hand strength and your hands may get sore if you try to re-vamp 18 diapers in a day, but that's a lot of freaking snaps anyway! So far, I have re-vamped some BumGenius, Happy Heinies, and a Thirsties or two, and I have yet to have a problem. I love hoq quickly and easily pieces change out, and the instructions on-line are beyond helpful. There are also tutorial GALORE so you should never feel lost. These are cost-effective, easy to use, and easy to maintain. I am so glad I went with these over a more expensive company who sold a similar set of pliers! Thanks, Kam Snaps!

I purchased a pair of pliers with a cosmetic blemish. They worked ok (some of the snaps broke or did not press together correctly), but this is probably user error and I just need some more time to practice. However, my pair did have an issue with one of the screw holes not holding the screw in place. Judy responded very quickly when I emailed to let her know about the issue. After several emails, pictures of the problem and finally a video of the issue, she had me return my pair and very quickly replaced them with a new pair.
In any case they are 100 times better and cheaper than hammering metal snaps.

These are the best thing I've ever had for alllll my crafting! I use them mostly on my diapers, but they have so many uses! I got the cosmetic/blemished ones and have not had to replace any of it yet! The only think I wish would happen is that when you ship pliers to have the black cap in there ready to receive size 20 snaps. I have had many people ask what's wrong with their technique when it's just and issue with the cap. I myself had the issue!

Note from KAMsnaps: This is one of the reasons we recommend reading our online instructions first, in which we explain that the cap die may need to be changed depending on what size snaps are being used. While many KAMsnaps.com customers happen to use size 20, these pliers are made for a wide range of products that utilize various sizes. Instructions can be found on the Tutorials link at the top menu bar.

I LOVE my pliers. It took me a bit of practice at first, but now they are thoroughly broken in and work great! The only issue I have is not actually because of the pliers, but I have cysts on my wrists that can sometimes make it impossible for me to press hard enough to completely secure the snaps. I think for 100% "healthy" hands, these are a piece of cake, but maybe for those of us with any medical issues (incl arthritis, carpal tunnel, etc) would benefit more from a snap press versus the pliers.

Really? I just received mine pliers and snaps and I can't keep the bloody thing on!!! Half of them fall off! I have to test each and every one and throw the rotten one's away. It doesn't matter how hard I press. And the silicone tips on the pliers fall off constantly! I am VERY disappointed in these snaps. And I thought moving from metal to plastic was a Good Idea. I don't know what is wrong with these snaps but they don't seem to like Each Other. And if you are NOT testing them before you sew them inside of something? Your in for a huge surprise later on.

(KAMsnaps reply: We suspect the instructions were not read prior to use here. As stated on the product page and in the order follow-up email, it is important that you read the instructions found on the Tutorials link at the top menu bar of our site (which by the way, tells you to practice on scrap fabric first). The instructions not only include set-up procedures but also have tips on troubleshooting and removing snaps. Please note that videos are also included but are meant to accompany, and not substitute for, the written instructions.)

I have used these snaps on so many things and I would never go back to metal snaps. I never even read the instructions. Just make sure the entire shaft is through fabric, and the socket or stud and squeeze. Never even had to adjust them. The only problem I had was getting on off that I put on the wrong side. They are the greatest thing since sliced bread. WOW! I am going to try and get all the colors because I know I will use them. The price of the snaps is unbelievable too. Keep everything like it is and you will be in business forever.

I am in heaven!!! My pliers and snaps arrived today and I just finished off a lot of bibs that were "in waiting". I have always dreaded putting snaps on things because of the difficulty. I worked along with the tutorial, learned this in all of 2 minutes and I won't ever look back. I am totally hooked and can now honestly say that I LOVE doing snaps. Thanks for the great product!!!

These work great, though they are a bit uncomfortable to use if you have a lot of snapping to do. There's also a loud squeak every time they open. But they get the job done!

Reply from KAMsnaps: You can try WD40 for the squeak.

I should have bought these in 2008 when I first started using snaps. I unfortunately bought the metal snaps and pliers from a big craft store and those always misaligned and I wanted to bang my head against a wall or table too many times to count! Don't hesitate! These pliers and the resin snaps are FABULOUS and worth every cent!!!

I bought these to convert my velcro diapers and make my own diapers. I have also used them to add snaps to other projects here and there and it really makes them look professional and it quick. My only complaint is that it can hurt my hands if I'm doing more than a couple and it's difficult to apply snaps through other layers of fabric because the cap won't fit in the die.

I purchased these pliers after selling my snap press a year ago, so I wasn't sure how I'd like them after having the large snap press. But they work great for me! I made my family reusable paper towels for Christmas so 2 layers of flannel, and had no problems at all and the snaps are holding on great! My Mom even was able to use them without any instruction from me first so they are simple to use!

Much better than I had anticipated! Snap application is, well, a SNAP using the pliers & the little awl to poke through the fabric. I was skeptical, having struggled through previous ways of putting on snaps & "grippers" since the '70s. When the pliers arrived, they certainly looked not promising; rusty, funky, and clunky. But I followed the written instructions (which you have to go to the website to get - why can't they be included with the pliers?) and watched the tutorials, and found that it really is very simple and very accurate. I do wish that the handles were longer, or bigger, or made a more definitive "click" or something when the snap has been properly applied, but despite my worries, the snaps have all been easily and securely placed. You do need a couple of layers of fabric to properly support the snap, otherwise it can't really get the snug fit and the mashed-down spike you need for security, but for my purposes (snaps on bibs, so far), it works quickly and easily. Would be a problem for someone with badly arthritic hands, I imagine.

I bought the cosmetic defect pliers and the "defect" is no big deal to me. If you'd like the discount, I think it's worth it. Just a little rust on the one metal piece. Snapping with the pliers really isn't too bad, I'm sure it's easier with the press, but I snapped all day log the other day and I still could have done more by the end of the day... my hands weren't too sore. I think it's worth getting the pliers for the savings. Or, you can always have your husband help, like I like to do too!

I was really looking forward to recieving my snap pliers. I read all the rave reviews, but I am very disappointed with this product. There is not enough leverage in the pliers to get a good smash on the prong before the handles touch together. I have pretty strong hands and I have tried several dozen times and no matter how hard I smash the snap pops off the post. I am only going through a single layer of ribbon, so thickness should not be an issue. I was really looking forward to using this product, now it's back to the drawing board. This company does not refund period so choose wisely!

(KAMsnaps reply: A single layer of ribbon is too thin for size 20 snaps. If the fabric is too thin, the prongs will not smush flat enough no matter how hard you press. If buyer had contacted us with the problem, we would have explained that either smaller snaps are needed or additional layers.)

I have had the snap pliers for almost a year and it works great. I find it works best with size 16 snaps, it squishes the center prong down very well. The size 20 works too but I have more trouble lining it up. I like it because the snap pliers is very portable and can fit in my box of sewing stuff easy.

I've been using the snap pliers to make diapers for my baby - they are easy to use, lightweight and portable. And a good value compared to the press. There is a bit of variability in the evenness of squishing the pliers produce - but that's to be expected with pliers, apparently. It's not too physically demanding to do either (I was worried about that - my hand doesn't get tired for several diapers worth of snaps). Overall, highly recommended!

I've had my snap pliers for a few months now and it works great. I use it to apply snaps to cloth diapers, clothes, wet bags, etc. They're very easy to use, lightweight, portable and fit nicely in my sewing basket. I have weak wrists (had one too many sprains I guess), so it's a little tricky to squish down the snaps with the proper amount of force. But I've found that if I rest the long side of the handle against the floor and press straight down on the other handle, it squishes the the snaps perfectly and with little to no strain on my hands.

My only problem is the fact that if you aren't familiar with this product and just come to the site to order it's easy to get confused with what exactly to order.I ended up ordering what I thought was a complete set of rainbow snaps and it ended up just being the caps. Now I need to reorder the rest of the set and pay extra to get it shipped. Other then that I love the product.

I love my pliers! I thought they might be hard to use after reading the instructions online, but I got the first snap on correctly and haven't ever had any problems! The only time I had trouble was when I wasn't paying close enough attention and put the pliers on the snap backwards. I had to unscrew the pliers to open them wide enough to get off the snap. It would be helpful if they opened a little wider anyway, but other than that I have no complaints. I've used them to put snaps on 3 dozen fitted diapers and I'm excited about having them for the future!

I bought the pliers after attempting to place snaps with a tap and die set for a while first. :( I had a lot of trouble learning to use them, even after watching the tutorial video several times the die always seemed to bite on the snaps and render them useless. The pliers always fixed the snaps in place as it should, but the snaps did not work. After wasting several dozen snaps and becoming a pro at removing snaps with my screwdriver, I changed the die set to the size lower than was required (16 for 20 snaps) removed the rubber stopper, and placed the larger sized stopper on the smaller die. Now i love it! no more broken snaps and everyone is happy, even if I'm not using them the way they were intended, they work great and I love snaps!

Now that I've been able to use them to repair 6 diapers I feel I can give them an adequate rating. Honestly, I wish I could rate them on more than just "rating." As far as value is concerned this is definitely the best cost effective means to do small jobs and repair (5 stars). Ease of use is a 4 star, but I think that the outcome of the snap adhering really can vary, so for quality I'd give it a 3.5. Why? It's simple, I have had no issues putting on caps and studs, but caps and sockets are another beast. I think that another piece that attached to the head of the clamp that fit better in the sockets would make for a better "smoosh." I have found that the size 24 cap works better for the smooshing of the sockets. All that being said, the pliers are very easy to use, and even with limited hand strength I can repair two diapers before my hand even feels it. Overall, I think it's an amazing product and with a little tweaking would be miraculous. Thanks!

I've never used snap pliers or press before. I researched and saw that most people liked the kamsnaps the best. I got my set and changed the die head to fit my snaps and started snapping away!

I didn't realize at first that I also needed to change the bolt so my snaps were smooshed. It would be nice if directions came INSIDE with the kit but kamsnaps is good about having videos to help. Now that I've changed the die head and the bolt, It works wonderfully!

I would suggest though, if you are getting these to work on anything fluffy to go ahead and get the longer prong snaps because I got the regular ones and am working on cloth diapers and some parts are too thick for them. ps, fast ship too!

These pliers are perfect! Instructions on the site to set them up are clear (there are no instructions on the packaging), you get what is in the picture on top of this page. The pliers are well built (I'd say aluminum casting for the body of the pliers, the dies are solid plastic, rubber spacer is good) nice quality and are easy to use. The mechanism is simple and efficient, and I think they'll last for as long as I will need them. My 7 year old is able to use them by herself after I gave her simple instructions provided on this site. Great product for any job . I'm using them for cloth diapers and other garments and I couldn't have done it without them. Great product.

I got these recently and I am in love! They are so simple to use and do a great job! Something to keep in mind when changing the bolt side: when putting the screw back in place after loading the rod and spring make sure you are putting it in the same side as the other screws on that handle! Happy snapping!

I snap up lots of diapers. I've got my own business and a cloth diapering ministry. I only use snaps, so there are many days that I spend snapping. I love the snap pliers. I love how I can move around the house to snap. This makes it much easier to snap with a toddler running around.

I never have a problem with the snaps. They work very well and are very easy to apply. I was so nervous the first time. Now i'm snapping everything around my house.

Even my husband will say to me.."Can't you put snaps on that?"

Thanks for a great product and great customer service.

God Bless,
Laura

I originally ordered resin snaps from a different sight and needless to say it was my first time trying them. When I received my shipment I was very confused as to how to apply them to my ribbon. Then I found this sight with the snap pliers and I was so excited! When my pliers came in the mail I could hardly contain myself. I have a small business and one of the items I sell are soother clips, the snaps used to take me up to 10 minutes per clip! Now I am able to finish over a dozen in the same amount of time. The pliers make it so easy to line up and offer attachments for different sizes. In my opinion I could not have received a better product in the mail that day. Thanks!

I was skeptical, but decided to try it. My job was to make diapers for my grandson. I was skeptical because I've had rotten luck with fabric store snap pliers. Not so with these. The first snap was, well, a snap to install. I've installed many snaps since then, with only one failure. The clearance is relatively low & I'm guessing it's slower than a press, but for non commercial use, it's the way to go.

So I was a bit iffy about getting the pliers, but I just couldn't afford the press right now. After looking at the tutorial, I applied the "new" style dies easily. Then got to snapping. I found it far more simple than I had expected.

The only other set of pliers I've owned are those cheap ones from WalMart. They were HORRIBLE! And took so much pressure that my arms hurt after trying to apply less than 10 snaps. Not with my new Kam Snaps pliers!

I am so totally sold on these things. They don't take an insane amount of pressure, and are fairly easy to attach to fabrics. As long as you read the tutorials before you use them, you shouldn't have any problems.

If you do buy these, I would advise you to get the newer dies for them. I use size 20 and they fit SO much better into the new die. They don't wiggle around at all.

Buy these, you'll love them!

this is an awesome product. i was hesitant to buy it because of the mixed reviews on some blogs. However for the price i decided it was worth a shot. changing the dies on it was a snap (no pun intended) took like 2 mins. its so easy to line everything up and press it, i think i have messed up once out of oh maybe 100 snaps.

so worth it, especially if you dont have the money to throw down on the industrial snap press. it does take a little time to put on snaps but the pliers are so convenient that i can sit in front of the tv and use them or take them with me if im going to be sitting somewhere for awhile. i would recommend this to anyone!

Kam Snaps has been one of the Best Products I've come into contact with. Not only are the handy pliers easy to use, but they are convienent to me when I am traveling and want to keep crafting. I can carry them with me and use them where ever I am. I've carried them with me to Craft Shows and continue crafting during customer intermissions. I can also easily fix items to a customers needs with my handy pliers.
There are so many products that I've created with Kam Snaps and new creations are popping up every day. Kam Snaps have helped me to become successful at my craft and wouldn't ever go back to using anything else. Thanks Kam Snaps!

I absolutely love my snap pliers, I use them for personal diaper making and crafting. The first few times I used them the pliers were awkward, but now they are very easy to use and I use them weekly for something. The pliers are a great product for people that do not need to apply a tremendous amount of snaps, especially home crafter's and personal diaper makers.

First of all I'd like to get started by saying why the heck did I not come across you before. Had I known ya had a cheap snap press before I would have saved a few $100s on my cloth diaper stash. I purchased a few from cottonbabies.com and they are great but they are a little expensive. Plus my husband had just been laid off work at that time that I could not afford to buy any more. So now I will be expanding my stash by making my own in a more budget friendly way.

I had never used a snap press and I thought it was going to be difficult what I did was look at your video tutorials on how to use them first and saw it was quite easy and indeed it is easy. So easy that I have become an addict at snapping. I am always going around my house looking for things i can convert to snaps.

ID like to thank you for having such a great product, besides your snaps of course. I can tell you already that I have done some cloth diapers with snaps, mama pads with interchangeable snap on liners and some other neat stuff that I will not get into too much detail because I will take advantage of getting free gift certificates for posting tutorials but I can tell you you will be hearing from me more often.

Once againg thanks for offering great products for all those budget wise people out there like myself. For those who can't decide on a press or pliers. I can tell you that the pliers are very easy to use and there are really no major trouble shooting issues with these but inthe end it's all a matter of choice. Both products will do their work. But if you are looking to not spend so much the pliers are best. Plus just add some snaps at the time of your order and you'll be spending just enough to get free shipping.

I recently purchased a pair of the pliers for plastic snaps. I am really happy with the purchase. I received the pliers in the mail very quickly. I found the online instructions and videos to be very informative. I watched the tutorials prior to setting up the pliers. I had an easy time replacing the plunger for the size 20 snaps.

I tried the pliers for the first time on a mama pad that had lost its metal snap. I had no problem applying the snap and the resulting snap works great. I love that the first snap I applied works and looks great.

I followed the guidelines on the tutorial for centering the snap parts and made sure everything was centered prior to pressing the handle. I actually turned the handle over and pressed with both hands to secure the snaps after I did the initial press. I think for personal use the snap pliers are great and a lot easier than anything I have tried previously.

I have used metal snaps and a hammer previously and the snap pliers are far superior. Another wonderful bonus is the wide array of colors available for the plastic snaps.

I am looking forward to purchasing more snaps and using them on my cloth diapers and covers. Overall I am really happy with my purchase and the customer service.

I was making my own cloth diapers and covers, and for that application, the pliers were just what I needed. They are very easy to use. Just place your snap pieces, center the snap, and squeeze. I thought it was going to be harder, but I was pleasantly surprised. Make sure you watch the video about changing the plier pieces before use. It was very straightforward and helped immensely. The only complaint I have is that I constantly have to tighten the screws to keep the pliers from loosening (and thus not working right) but I guess maybe now that I'm using them for more applications, I should invest in a press :) All around, very good, especially for the price. I truly thought I was getting in over my head by trying to apply snaps, but the pliers make it very easy.

These pliers are a great starter kit if you're just getting started with plastic snaps, at a good price. From having researched pliers and snaps on the net, this kit is not only affordable, it's also complete with everything you need, simple to use with no fuss over what's what and do I need something else, and comes with quite a few snaps too. And if you are still stuck, the website has plenty of tutorials to get you started.

Plastic snaps are strong and available in many sizes and colours, and offer a good alternative to the metal snaps & expensive presses. I use them on my knit wear for my toddler, as well as for cloth diaper covers.

I used these pliers to convert my velcro designed BumGenius 3.0 diapers to KAMsnsps. Unfortunately, I did not have much luck. Many to all of the snaps popped off after a couple times of use.

(Reply from KAMsnaps: A few things can cause this problem--fabric too thick for the particular snap size being used, not enough pressure applied to the pliers, or improper plier setup to name the most common. All are easy fixes. BumGenius snap conversions have been successfully accomplished by many with the pliers and shouldn't be too difficult. Our online instructions have a troubleshooting section and we're always here to help.)

These snap pliers are incredibly easy to use and give me consistent results. I was initially disappointed with the feel of them as I was expecting them to be made of a more heavy-duty metal. They feel rather like plastic, which makes them seem cheap. However, they've yet to break or malfunction, so I will continue to use them with confidence.

I LOVE my pliers - they really are versatile. I have used them for putting snaps on shirts, curtains, diapers and soakers, and all kinds of things! I use mainly the size 20 snaps and have found that they can get off center and press funny resulting in a snap that doesn't work. For removal of those snaps, I just used an exacto knife and cute the smashed prong out of the socket or stud and they separate quite easily. While I haven't used a press, so I don't have a comparison - for a bargain of a price, the pliers work wonderfully!

I really like my pliers. I just make diapers and projects to use at home and not sale. They work great for my small projects. Definately worth the money.

I have hundreds of size 14 snaps (reg) unfortuanately they don't work the best with pliers. You can not get the point to smash good enough and many have to be replaced after a few uses.

The size 20 snap works fine, except you have to center it by yourself and sometimes it slips and ruins the stud snap. Then I have to replace it. which leaves a hole in my fabric.

I am looking forward to dies that fit perfectly for our snaps. That will make my job easier. Also looking forward to being able to use my size 14 with more success.

I received my snap pliers today. I ordered the extra snaps and some ones that coordinate with the BG 3.0 diapers. Everything arrived very fast, and was in great condition. Judy was awesome to talk to about problems with checkout. I used a reusable shopping tote from Target to test my snap pliers and snaps. The pliers were so easy to use. I got the snaps on perfect the first time. I then converted my Thirsties diaper covers to snaps and it took me only a few minutes. The only trouble I had was when trying to add a snap to my daughter's mittens, the knit material got snagged on the bottom die, and when I removed my hand from the socket/stud the top piece slipped. I could have used a third hand. Overall, with more practice I know this will be my favorite diaper sewing accessory.

I use the KAM snap pliers and I love them! For years I struggled with snap applications until I heard about KAM snaps. I tried them, read the tutorial a few times first, and was thrilled with the results. The colors match everything I make, the application is easy, they certainly are economical and the look is totally professional. I am now saving up for a press so I get on to bigger and better things. If in doubt, try them out.. you won't be sorry.
