What are Snap-Caps screw covers?

Snap-Caps screw covers are the original cap and washer combination used to conceal and protect the heads of screws, bolts, rivets, dowels and nails.  Snap-Caps screw covers are moulded from UV-stabilised polypropylene for both indoor and outdoor applications.

Why use Snap-Caps screw covers?

Snap-Caps screw covers will improve your product by protecting, decorating and concealing unattractive fasteners, including damaged, burred and corroded fasteners.  Snap-Caps screw covers can save you time, effort and money by allowing use of cheaper fasteners and more simple fixing methods.

How do Snap-Caps screw covers work?

The fastener is secured through the washer into the workpiece.  The cap is then "snapped" over the washer, mating by means of an interlocking peripheral groove and flange.  This provides an airtight seal that excludes atmosphere and protects the fastener head from rust and corrosion.

Snap-Caps are easy to fit!

because of the extra clamping area of the Washer, there is no need to over-tighten the fastener

place the Cap over the Washer at an angle and press down until the Cap locks over the Washer with an audible 'SNAP'

Position fastener through Washer and tighten into place.

Place Cap over Washer at an angle.

Press Cap down until it firmly engages with a SNAP!
