What's the secret to our snapping success? It's our long-prong snaps!
The Snap Source, Inc. offers the nation's largest selection of
American-made, fashion-colored snap fasteners. All of our
quality snaps feature long prongs which provide a better
fabric, allowing fasteners to remain securely in place, wash
after wash! You'll be amazed at how fun and easy it is to
use these commercial-quality, no-sew fasteners.
Our standard prong snaps come packaged in sets of four parts --
one fashion-colored top (open, capped or pearl) and three
underparts (socket, stud and non-colored open prong) in
small and large
quantities. All packages include special "hints and tips"
for successful snapping every time!
