I did try the fixes listed in the link for the other style of snap and they still didn't work.

I retried several loose snaps and now they seem like they won't hold the weight of the belt. They do pop on but are easy to remove.

I then tried and removed about 4 snaps from the belt, and all of them fail to hold the belt on. Maybe I need better quality ones? I just bought a multipack off ebay, maybe even same ones list in ukswraths builds.


I don't really want to, but I may have to resort to Velcro on Ab and attached to belt to hold it up.

Timely repost Q, thanks. Started trying to do my snaps and butchered three of them before quitting for the night. This couldn’t be more helpful. Thanks!!
