I did a search and found nothing on the subject which surprises me.....<br><br>
A good mama included a free snappi to me in my TP diaper purchase.<br><br>
It will not work! I am wondering if snappis work with all diapers. I have oc UTN and oc GR prefolds.<br><br>
Any ideas? Thanks!

I don't think snappis will work on all fabrics. If I recall, I had trouble using them on flats. I have no clue why, but I can snappi w/the best of them using cpf's. Maybe there's not enough for the little teeth to grab on your pf's?

snappis don't work on all fabrics. They don't usually grab well on tightly woven fabrics like hemp, organic cotton, and flannel. I think you might need pins to fasten an OC prefold.

I don't know if you already tried this, but Snappis do need to be pre-stretched. Just take each arm and really pull on it about 20 times. When you use it on the diaper, don't be afraid to really pull it across.
