Dritz® heavy duty snaps are hardware fasteners used in DIY sewing and repair projects to create a functioning closure. These snaps are durable and work as ideal fasteners for sportswear, coats, jackets, vests and tops. Substitute cap and post on the reverse side to create reversible garments. Use for making accessories such as bags, totes, belts, wallets and device cases. Great for repairing and replacing utility items such as boating covers, tents and camping gear. Easy to apply using Dritz® heavy duty snap pliers (item # 24P), Dritz® heavy duty snap tools (item # 3) or using a hand tool that comes as part of the Dritz® heavy duty snap kit (item # 18-65). This package includes 7 snap sets; each set includes a cap, socket, post and stud.
