I made a Surlast boat cover for a 20 yr old deck boat this spring.  Used 1 1/2 nylon webbing encased in two layers of Surlast, used your hard action and normal actions DOT durable Snap fasteners installed with your deluxe snap fastener anvil.  My customer is saying that he has to grab fabric on either side of snap to pull it off boat and then part of snap stays on the boat.  Can you think what I might have done wrong?  I tested the snaps to make sure they were good and snug on the fabric, but have not yet been able to see in person what my customer is saying about the snaps.

Sounds like the rivet did not set properly or the rivet length was not deep enough for the tab thickness. The rivet head should roll securely into the cavity of the socket and it should not be possible to pull them apart. Sounds like a good inspection is in order.
Thanks, Matt
