DOT® Snap Fastener Hard Action Socket is a top quality nickel-plated brass socket that is used for cloth-to-cloth and cloth-to-surface applications. A button (sold separately) rivets to the socket. The installed socket and button can then be snapped to a stud. For cloth-to-surface installations, use a stud with an integrated screw and for cloth-to-cloth applications use a stud in conjunction with an eyelet.
This is a hard action socket meaning it requires more force to pull the socket off the stud than with normal action sockets.
DOT snap fasteners are excellent for covers, cushions, dodgers, biminis, and other applications. DOT snap fasteners can be used as a forestay hank for sails under 100 square feet when installed on tabs of fabric or webbing.
