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

    • I am interested in what this cough muffler looks like
    • Looks like a lot of rocks.  Could be some fish laying on the bottom.  I look for separation between the object and the shadow.  After I get more acquainted with my new unit i will try and post some shots
    • Its a whole new world down there with SI and DI.   After you learn what the picture is showing you,  you'll wonder what took so long to get it   I was a Lowrance guy for years and made the switch to H'bird this year with the new Solix with Mega chirp.  Very happy with it so far.  Amazing clarity and images.

    • Back to the original reply- which one and which size? http://www.homedepot.com/p/Basement-Watchdog-Emergency-Battery-Backup-Sump-Pump-System-BWE/100055241   Amperage (amps) 6.5   Or, if you want to be serious then install a few of these bad boys. I call it the Mother Of All Backups or MOAB for short.   https://www.sumppumpsdirect.com/SUMPRO-SUMPROGOLD-Sump-Pump/p2565.html  
    • Has anyone been on Clear yet this season? Thinking about heading that way in a few weeks to try for some walleye and yellows. 
    •   Well wasn't cheap but you got fixed and it would have been a real mess if she blew out on the lake.
    • Congrats looks like a beautiful and productive lake! Nice work. 
    • Ended up being the clutch dog and reverse gear were wore out... 550 for parts...I almost ended up getting a whole new lower unit, but a buddy was able to find the parts...The shop said they discontinued the parts Yada Yada Yada, but some shop in Hackensack was able to find them I guess...just want the dang boat back ha...
