- Diaper Lover
Recently I ordered (3) pair of snap-on plastic pants from Protex Medical. Generally I wear pull-on pants, but thought the snap-on pants would be more convenient for changing away from home. Well I decided to try them out the past couple of days and find that it’s quite easy to slip a finger in between the snaps to see how my diaper is wicking and to see how wet it is. This led me to wonder if there isn’t a better way than snaps to close the seam that closes the back to the front. Velcro strips would do a better job than of making a leak resistant seam than the (4) snaps they currently use. Plus the snaps are hard enough to separate that I’m concerned about tearing them out of the vinyl and with Velcro I don’t believe that this would be as much of a problem. They have located the seam forward from the sides which is nice because it does reduce leakage when I sleep on my side, but I still believe that the idea of Velcro strips on the seams has merit. Of course a better name would have to be thought of than “Velcro-on” or “hook and loop-on” plastic pants.
