How to attack plastic snap fasteners? on 12/04/2008 17:39:46 MST Print View

I recently bought a bunch of these: http://myebestbuy.com/plasticsnapfasteners-1.aspx

Does anyone have experience using these? They seem to be the same snaps that are used on Montbell UL down clothing. It looks like part of the snap has to be melted or something in order to be attached.
