Snappi Care and Use


DIRECTIONS FOR USE:

Snappi® fasteners must be used responsibly, and need to be used correctly in order to work effectively.

1. STRETCH the Snappi® fastener before its first use. The stretching triggers the 'memory' of the Snappi® to return to its original size and in so doing, pulls the diaper together 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!

2. Make sure that the Snappi® is ATTACHED SECURELY. It is important that the Snappi® 'leg' being attached 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 loops.  So,

Hook Left,
Stretch ACROSS and Hook Right,
Stretch DOWN and Hook Center

In other words, the Snappi® fastener should go from a ‘T’ shape to a ‘Y’ shape.

By following these instructions, the Snappi® should be secure and the diaper will fit snugly. ALWAYS place a cover over the diaper and Snappi® fastener. 

CARE: Clean your Snappi® in hot soapy water. Do not launder them with diapers in the washer as this may weaken the grip attachment.

SAFETY FEATURE: The rings at the end of each leg have a solid piece embossed with the Snappi logo and a crescent-shaped loop at the end of each leg.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 in product description. 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.
WARNING:
1. ALWAYS use a cover when using a Snappi® fastener with your baby’s diaper.
2. Keep out of children’s reach when not in use!
3. Do NOT use a Snappi® fastener on toddlers that have the ability to undo their cover and take off their diaper and/or clothes.
4. Do not use your Snappi® for longer than 6 months.
5. Do not leave your Snappi® lying in the sun as it is not UV resistant and can reduce the effectiveness of the Snappi®.

CAUTION: 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 mentioned 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.
