BG Freetime elastic replacement/snap conversion

I took the plunge and just ordered Kam snap pliers and I am going to snap convert 5 of my H&L Freetimes and I figured while I am in there, I will replace the leg elastics (a few are on their way out, anyway).

Anyone here have any tips for me? I have seen lots of tutorials for replacing elastic/snap converting BG pockets, but no AIOs.

TIA!

There is two sizes of elastic people prefer (I think 1/2 in and 3/4 inch), use a seam reaper for easy aplix removal. Other than that I can't be much help sorry.

I think I figured out the appropriate place to "open up" my Freetimes. Since I have 5 to do, I should be good at it by then, LOL.

Sorry, no help here, but have a question instead. How long have you had them before they needed to be replaced? TIA!
