Do you find that Snappi's damage your diapers?

I recently purchased some beautiful Megaroos Extended Tab Pf's here on DS and I love them. My problem is that whenever I go to snappi them, they keep getting small holes and the middle part of the snappi will not stay put. Pinning is not for me or for my squirmy 1 year old. What do you Mama's recommend? Is there a Snappi secret that I need to learn, or is this just the way it goes? Thanks!

I can never get that middle prong to stick on my Megs either. I have to use pins since we go coverless most of the time. I was told that with pins though, holes are normal so maybe its that way with the snappi too. Sorry mama, that wasnt much help.

Well, it does help a bit. Thanks! I'm thinking about just cutting off that middle part of the snappi. Wish I could get the pinning down!

I have pin damage from cotton interlock closure-less fitteds. I think it's just the nature of the cotton interlock fabric, unfortunately, to get little holes from pins.

IME to get the middle leg of the snappi to stay put, you have to stretch it down pretty tightly and get a good "bite" of fabric under the teeth. I haven't tried Megaroos ETPFs but I am very tempted

it does take some practice but pull that wing up (towards babys head) then out and pull over as tight as you can. It took me alot of practice but she can scoot around now and it stays nice and snug. and it looks SO darling with just that one pin.
