Boat Cover Snaps--size?

bshippjrbshippjr Member Posts: 113 ✭✭✭
I need to replace some missing snaps on my boat cover.  When I look on ebay for just the female button parts that I need there are different sizes, but when I look on Amazon and other marine sites at the snap kits with the pliers there is no mention of size.  So......are boat cover snaps a universal size or should I be looking for a specific size?

    @bshippjr, I'll be completely honest.  I purchased the pliers and snaps separately when I purchased mine.  I didn't pay attention to the sizing, I just got a pack of the male and a pack of female pieces and they matched fine.

    However, in my experience, when I attached them to the cover side, when I went to click them to the existing male snap portion on the boat side, it didn't fit.  I tapped it on lightly using a hammer.  Pulled it off and it worked perfectly afterwards.  It needed to be seated initially was all I experienced but to my knowledge they're universal.  (I'm sure there are different size snaps, but in general, if you eyeball the size, it should match whats on the boat)
