Important Instructions for Placing Marine Snaps On Raw Netting
While not optimal, you can place marine snaps into raw netting. These are NOT our fabricated panels that have a sturdy perimeter webbing (similar to a doubled over seat belt) that is more robust for placing marine snaps. However, we get that you may have your reasons, among them cost. If you do it right and do not plan to unsnap frequently, this modified method will work. You must be more careful when unsnapping by pulling from rubber discs described below. PLEASE watch this video.
Marine snaps are prone to "ripping out" which isn't a concern for our fabricated curtains since they are placed in a sturdy doubled over webbing. When you place these in raw netting, the marine snap needs some modification so they do not "rip out".
Important Rubber Discs
The good news is that our netting is very strong, but when placing snaps, you must use rubber discs on either side of the fabric to reinforce the fabric by distributing the load on a broader surface.
You will still need to take care when snapping and unsnapping, but raw netting and these reinforced snaps is an inexpensive way to fasten raw netting to some fixed surface. It works very well (and we are picky), you just have to place them correctly and unsnap carefully.
Snaps in doubled over webbing only on our fabricated panels. Raw net is unfinished without webbing.
Modified snap for raw netting. When you unsnap netting, pull from beneath rubber disc
Rubber washer on both sides help to reinforce snap and reduce chance of ripping out.
Adhesive snaps for vinyl, metal, brick, some stone, & concrete. NOT for Stucco or sandstone.
