The Accessory Panel Units already come with a full set of screw studs necessary for installation. If you find yourself in need of additional snaps for additional mounting options then we have more available.
YKK® SNAD® Black 25mm Adhesive Backed Flexible Base Stud allows for a secure marine attachment to curved surfaces without damaging your surface. No tool, no wait, no splits, no hole!
The YKK Adhesive Backed SNAD is tested by marine canvas professionals as a high performing metal snap alternative that attaches to a surface with adhesive rather than screws. It's very forgiving for the DIYer! The flexible silicone body makes this snap stud the perfect choice when needing to install a fastener a curved or uneven surface.
The SNAD stud secures to surfaces with a pad of 3M™ VHB™ acrylic conformable adhesive tape (located on the underside of the silicone body) that enables the snap to adhere to surfaces without having to drill a hole. It’s as easy as cleaning the application surface, peeling off the protective paper backing, positioning and firmly holding the snap in place.
The YKK SNAD Stud can be used wherever a conventional screw stud might be used.

Surface Preparation Instructions and Application Guidelines:
Snap components will adhere to most clean, dry and well-unified surfaces. Typical surface cleaning solvents are a 50/50 Isopropyl Alcohol (rubbing alcohol) water mixture. Let air dry or wipe dry with a soft lint-free cloth before applying fastener. Remove liner from back of disk. Position snap and roll into place. Press down on the snap working all the way around the snap and in the center to secure to substrate.
Ideal tape application temperature range is 70ºF to 100ºF (21ºC to 38ºC).
After application, the bond strength increases and approaches the ultimate bond strength after 72 hours at 70ºF (21ºC). Typical bond strength build-up: 20 minutes equals 50% bond strength, one hour equals 75% bond strength, one day equals 90% bond strength, and three days equals 100% bond strength.
