Directions For Use
Snappi® fasteners must be used responsibly, and need to be used correctly in order to work effectively.
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 diaper together in 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.
Make sure that the Snappi® is attached securely. It is important that the Snappi® 'leg' being attached to 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 safety loops.
Stretch across and hook right
Stretch down and hook center
The Snappi® fastener, once secured, should go from a 'T' shape to a 'Y' shape.
Extra Safety Feature!
When the Snappi® fastener is not in use, fold the loop over the back of the Snappi® end to fit over the teeth of the white grip (see photo). This acts as a barrier and prevents the sharp teeth from being exposed. 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.
ALWAYS use a cover when using a Snappi® fastener with your baby's diaper.
Keep out of children's reach when not in use!
Do NOT use a Snappi® fastener on toddlers that have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes.
Do not use your Snappi® for longer than six months.
Do not leave your Snappi® lying in the sun as it is not UV resistant and can reduce the effectiveness of the Snappi®.
Clean your Snappi® in hot soapy water. Do not launder them with diapers in the washer as this may weaken the grip attachment.
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 explained 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.
These are a godsend! No more pins to poke me or baby! They are durable and easy to rinse off. I have used mine for over a year and they are still just like they were when I bought them!
