Question13 Is there a recommended pull-test machine?
Answer13 Answer13SafQ Snap Tester is recommended. It is used to determine the holding or breaking strength of prong-ring attached snap fasteners on garments. It consists of an Upper Snap Clamp, a Lower Fabric Clamp & Force Gauge mounted on a Stand. The snap component is gripped by the Upper Snap Clamp and the garment is fixed to the lower Fabric Clamp. By turning the Top Flywheel, the operator can apply a specific force and the holding force or the breaking strength can be recorded. Capability can be enhanced with clamps & accessories for testing of other Snaps, Jeans Buttons, Four Hole Buttons & Garment Accessories such as Zippers, Bows, Applique, Toggles, Hooks/Bars, and D-Rings, among others.
