Getting Snaps For My Boat Cover?

8 posts in this topic

Hey guys, our Lund has a snap-on cover, great, but some of the snaps are missing. Anyone have any idea where I can get more? I heard they sell kits of them, but I haven't seen any. Where can I get some?

Some hardware stores have them, marine dealers should be able to give you some or sell you some loose ones.

any crafting store will carry them, i made a custom cold front grille cover this winter and used the snap system, bought everything from the local crafts direct.

good old FF or a local hardware store will have them. I did my cover for my fishhawk with them. they come with the stamp to attach them and you can also by refil kits. the kit with the stamp was about $4, and the refils were about $2.50. that was for a set of 5 or six. it was a lot cheaper than ordering from the big box fishing store

Do they come in different sizes? How do I know what size to get? Thanks guys.

They're all pretty standard size... and you should be able to judge it by looking at it. Otherwise measure the inteface part of the snap - that should get you close enough.

Canvas Plus in Rogers will put on new snaps for about a buck each, and if your covers other snaps are loose they will tighten them down. They will likely do it while you wait. They also sell kits with about 15 snaps for about $10.

Menards carries them ,,I lost 11 snaps the first year all with the help of my fishing partners,,, Now I spray a small amount of a dry lubrican like Hoppes #9 or Remoil dry lube (firearm lubricant) on the cover snap and havent lost as many since

    • And that's the key...it takes a guy or two to step back from the max deal and take a pay cut to keep this type of talent together. In the NFL, the Patriots are a dynasty because Tom Brady is smart enough to take far less than he'd command on the open mark to stay put with a great coach and build weapons around him...he values rings (aka, his legacy) more than a few more dollars. If GS can do that, they will be relevant for a very long time.
    • nope it didnt!!!!!!!!!
    • IDK, people pick apart the Hanzal/White trade as a mistake, but I don't. I think it was totally worth the shot to make a solid push. Going in everyone who did any analysis knew the first round was going to be full of 2nd round talent so losing a 1st rounder this year wasn't giving up much. I also don't think Fletch should make a trade for the sake of making a trade either. That is a desperation move and not one fueled by focusing on getting the team better. I would be shocked if someone like Scandella isn't moved in order to make room from Granlund, Nino, etc. We are really tight now with the guys we want to keep and have a few holes to fill beyond that so something has to give.
    • Garretson Food Center..... $1.69/ pound You are exactly right.... And if you vacuum seal it with some of the drippings, this winter it will taste like it was fresh off the smoker!
    • The truth comes out!
    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.
