CAP - the cap is the most visible part of a snap, which is the dome that is visible on the outside of the garment. You need one cap per socket or stud. Some people sometimes mix cap colours with the socket or stud they are applying for required visual effects.
SOCKET - is the female part of the snap that joins together with the male – you need one cap to apply one socket to a garment.
STUD - is the male part of the snap that joins together with the socket – you need one cap to apply one stud to a garment.
3-1 RATIO - most people use 3 sockets to 1 stud when making MCN’s, giving a 3-1 ratio. Socket & Cap sets are available because you usually use more sockets than studs on your nappies. To buy a 3-1 ratio, you need to buy 1 full set, and 2 socket & cap sets. Most people start out buying full sets, and topping up their socket and caps later on, but if you are trying to get everything in one hit to save on postage, and are using for nappies, a 3-1 ratio is a good guide.
