For those who prefer a non-metal, twist-lock fastener you cannot beat Permalock. Manufactured from DuPont's non-corrosive, UV stabilized Zytel, Permalock Fasteners are very durable and hold up well in the sun. The eyelet can be installed in assemblies up to 1/8-inch thick and is limited by the length of the eyelet legs.
This is for Cloth-to-Surface Assemblies, Cloth-to-Cloth sets are also available.
Please Note: We recommend to avoid placing these fasteners where they can be stepped on.
To Install: Mark where the stud will need to be installed on the surface. Secure the stud to the intended surface using the supplied #6 flat head screws. Mark where the eyelet legs will be on your fabric. Using an awl, or similar device, poke holes in the fabric where the eyelet legs will pass through. The eyelet is simply squeezed together by hand: poke the eyelet legs of the top plate through the holes in the fabric and snap on the bottom plate, flat side towards the fabric, pressing firmly to secure tightly. Finally, cut out the center hole from the eyelet with a hot knife or utility blade. This can also be done prior to installation with a #1 or #2 hole punch.

Permalock Plastic Twist Lock Fasteners for Canvas
I ordered the Permalock Fastener Complete Cloth-to-Surface Black to replace the damaged buttons on my cooler cushion seat. Worked out great! After all the driving and using it non-stop on a week long duck hunt in NC, I was pretty impressed. Way better than the stock snap buttons that it came with. This is definitely the "go to" to replacing snap buttons!
I just reordered these because I had one fail for a customer. We rarely get high winds here but may have been tested during a storm. Going to check the specs.
