YKK SNAD Snap Fasteners from SD Products

Introducing a brand new range of Self-adhesive YKK SNAD Snap Fasteners. Unlike conventional metal screw studs used in many marine and related applications, this product will not snag clothing or deteriorate from exposure to sunlight, sand or grit.

What’s even more amazing about the SNAD fasteners is how they are secured to the desired substrates. On the underside of each part is a pad of 3MTM, VHBTM acrylic conformable foam adhesive that enables the snap to be adhered without having to drill a hole! For more than 20 years the VHBTM product line has proved to be tough in marine, automotive, medical, aerospace and even architectural applications. In order to bring flexibility and convenience to discriminating industrial users, YKK has adapted its use for our patented SNAD socket and stud designs. Installation is simple. Clean the surface where the snap is to be applied, peel off the protective paper backing, position in place and firmly hold the SNAD socket or stud in place and release. No tools, no splits, no holes!


  • Use wherever a conventional screw stud might be used:
  • Use to replace existing screw studs eliminating the need to fill-in the screw hole.
  • Use where screw studs are impossible to be used because substrate won’t hold a screw in place or cannot be penetrated.
  • Marine carpeting for decks
  • Canvas for decks, bulkheads or panels
  • Upholstery cushions and seating
  • Console covers

Snap components will adhere to most clean, dry and well-unified surfaces. SNAD fastener components will adhere to most clean, dry and well-unified (high energy) surfaces. Typical surface cleaning solvent is a 50/50 isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) and water mixture.
