One Way Socket is made of top quality nickel-plated brass and is used for cloth-to-cloth or cloth-to-surface applications. The socket features a ramped edge on the inside and a protrusion on the outside. The socket rivets to a special button (sold separately) to create a locking snap that will only open from one side.
Sockets are used in conjunction with buttons. And installed button and socket 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.
Snap fasteners work well with applications where the snap must be placed at an angle where the fabric tension is high. Snap fasteners are excellent for covers, enclosures and more. All fasteners are highly resistant to corrosion.
Install the socket so the protrusion is on the side that is to be released easily. Close the snap by closing the ramped side first and then the protrusion side.
