Press fasteners for tents, awnings and much more! Unique and patented.
By combining an auto-grade polyacetal fastener with an adhesive backing of 3M™, VHB™ acrylic conformable foam, YKK® brand SNAD stud or socket components perform without the problems caused by conventional snap systems.
Unlike traditional metal screw studs, YKK SNAD stud components require no hole in the mounting surface. Yet they mate perfectly with conventional metal or plastic snap components. And this new patented product enhances design flexibility by enabling use of a socket where only a stud could have been attached before. See downstated You Tube movie
