Dirt, grime and salt spray play havoc with zippers, snaps and hinges. Frustrated boat owners often buy special tools just to open and close them, and occasionally damage the surrounding canvas, plastic or neoprene when attempting to free the fastener. With Shurhold Industries' Snap Stick, a few minutes of simple maintenance alleviates hours of irritation later.

A unique, solid, wax-like formula, Snap Stick lubricates and protects snaps, zippers, hinges and other small hardware from the effects of being exposed to a harsh marine environment. Unscented, non-toxic and biodegradable, it won't harm fabric, gelcoat, metal or plastic. Unlike sprays and gels, it goes only where its dabbed. It works like lip balm: twist the base for the exact amount of product needed.

Snap Stick is simple to use. For snaps, it's dabbed on the male side, then worked a few times into both sides of the fastener. Run up and down lightly on the teeth of both sides of a zipper, opened and closed several times, it frees even the stickiest closure. A single use provides up to three months of protection and smooth operation. A video is at
