This product has been retired from our catalog and is no longer for sale. This page is made available for those looking for datasheets and the simply curious.
Description: Replacement: None. There is no direct replacement for these snaps. This page is for reference only.
A snap is fun, but a magnetic snap adds a whole new layer of possibilities. This are compact 10mm diameter snaps (all three pieces come as shown). They couple together very strongly (must be pried apart), rotate freely on the axis, and are electrically conductive. We’ve seen snaps like these soldered onto PCBs and batteries to form a strong, but quick disconnect mechanism. Overall connection resistance is less than 200 miliOhm. Snaps will couple when closer than 10mm.
Note: There have been complaints regarding the conductivity (or lack thereof) of these snaps. We are currently looking for a new supplier and in the mean time we won’t be reordering the problematic connectors. We apologize for the wait but we hope to line up a new supplier soon.
