Attaching signage to exhibits and booths with new YKK USA product

The SNAD snap components developed by YKK (U.S.A.) Inc. Snap & Button Products work for attaching signs, banners, lighting and many other accessories to tradeshow booths and exhibits. 

Originally created for the marine industry, the SNAD products are domed shape and come in either an automotive grade of plastic or a flexible base silicone.  They also contain a pad of 3M, VHB acrylic conformable foam adhesive on their underside, which enables them to stick to most high-energy surfaces, including those where it is impossible to drill a hole.

“This innovative product offers a new and creative way of attaching signage and other accessories to tradeshow exhibits.  It is really easy to use.  All we have to do is peel off the protective paper backing from the flexible SNAD; stick it to a pole; then peel off the backing from the plastic SNAD; attach it to the back of a sign and then mate the two SNAD products together and voilà!  This product is just what is needed for constructing those last-minute changes to a booth before a show opens,” said Charles Lanier, Kudos Events.

As an example of their use in tradeshow booths, YKK USA Snap & Button Products attached foam core board signs to the front and back of metal poles that are a part of their Kudos Events-created tradeshow booth by using the SNAD fasteners.  The flexible base SNAD products were adhered to the poles and then mated with the plastic SNAD fasteners, which were attached to the back of the foam boards.

The plastic SNAD fasteners and the flexible base silicone adhesive SNAD fasteners are available as either a stud or a socket, and their snap on/off lifecycle exceeds that of hook and loop closures.  Both products are also available in a 40 mm and 25 mm diameter low profile, and they come in black, white, gray, clear and custom colors.
