Dritz Easy Attacher Snap Fastener Kit Tutorial

I've been using the Dritz Easy Attacher Snap Fastener Kit to attach snaps to various projects.  While attaching them to the bibs I recently made for our "due any day" grandson, I thought I'd do a tutorial.

The Easy Attacher comes with size 16 snaps.  You can use it with size 15 or 16 snaps.  

You will need the:
  • Dritz Easy Attacher
  • 2 prong backs
  • 1 socket
  • 1 stud
  • Hammer

 Place prong point side up 

 Lay fabric over prong and push prong through fabric
Place "stud" in the top section.
 Hit with the hammer 2 or 3 times

 Turn your garment over and repeat using the "socket" (place side with small circle up) in place of the "stud" 

Hit with the hammer 2 or 3 times. 

 I hope this helps.



  1. Nice tutorial for your nifty tool there! I have a different tool for attaching those fasteners but I haven't used it in years! I wonder if I can remember how mine works?

    Thanks for linking to a Round Tuit!
    Hope you have a very Merry Christmas!

  2. I just bought one of these tools, I have never done snaps before and I lost my little directions... Thank you so much for having this on here, it really helped me out and I was able to finish the project I bought the snaps for!!

  3. I was having a hard time figuring out how to use this. Thank you!

  4. I was having trouble, too! Thanks so much! You're a lifesaver!

  5. Your tutorial is a lot better than the one printed on the back of the package! Thanks a lot! :)
