How to replace snap studs on boat window
im in the process of fixing and restoring my boat canopy and the snap studs on the window are either corroded off or loose so i want to replace all of them with stainless ones.
I think you are referring to the snaps in the metal of your windshield. We carry the screw in stud that has a stainless screw, but nickel/brass snap. They are available on my snap guide web page. I have not put 100% stainless on my site and you may have a hard time finding them online at the moment.
If you are talking about the snaps in the window/boat canvas then read on. The links for finding further snap help are below the next paragraph.
Replacing the boat snaps on your canopy will require a tool of some type, buying the snaps is easy.
The snap tools available on the market run from very crude to proffesional. Starting with a anvil style setting device and ending with the press n snap tool I use.
If you want the job to look proffesional they your choices are to either buy the necessary tool to put them in or bring them in to a proffesional to have it done. If you don't have one in your area, you could send it out.
The tool I often recommend is Time saver tool for setting the snaps and you can buy the snaps from me if you like.
You will find all the information on these two pages.
Thanks for sending in your question.
