Plastic Snap Reinforcement

#1

Post by ThomP99 » Thu Oct 13, 2016 11:06 am

I've made up a couple of Costco Throw topquilts more or less following Sargevining's instructions for the no-sew version. They worked exceptionally well this summer, and we have about 20 nights in on both of them. Early on, however, we began to have some snaps pull or rip through the nylon fabric on the throw. I've started to remove all the snaps and reinforce the holes with Gear Aid Tenacious Tape. So far the process has been straightforward, and I expect this will add the necessary reinforcement.

Interesting. I've not had similar problems. Usually two thicknesses of material is enough support for the snaps.
