Shurhold Snap and Zipper LubricantWords of exasperation wafting across a marina often signal a boat owner fighting with a jammed zipper or snap that won't catch. This frustrating situation is simple to avoid by using Snap Stick from Shurhold. Made in the USA, the easy-to-apply lubricant keeps marine fittings working smoothly for up to three months and reduces stress levels around the docks.

A unique, wax-like formula, Snap Stick lubricates and protects plastic and metal snaps, zippers, hinges and other small hardware from the effects of harsh marine environment exposure. Unscented, non-toxic and biodegradable, it won't harm fabrics and other boat surfaces. Non-soluble, it doesn't rinse off when exposed to rain and spray, or boat washing. A video is at

Unlike aerosols and gels, Snap Stick goes only where it's dabbed. It works like lip balm: twist the base for the exact amount of product needed. After applying on the male side of a snap or along both sides of a zipper, operating the hardware a few times works the lubricant into the components.
