Canon snaps are said to be Newey England,

But what size?, thats bearing in mind if you can find some cyclops

Although I bagged these a while ago in anticipation for the shoulder bell attachments, they look kinda close for the sew on type.

Yes they are sew on style Steve.

The sew on type are used on the shoulder bell to shoulder bridge straps, and are big something like 17 - 19mm.

The one for the chin straps would be 15mm, but bearing in mind we are looking for things in a time before the metric system was used in England, they may not be labelled up by size.

We are looking for s spring snaps or known usually as anorak snaps..

Hi Mark,

All the snaps I've seen have been number sized on the packs but alas your right, it's pre metric. although Newey appear to have thier own sizing system.

I'll dig out a pic ltr of my various sew on type, I have an assortment of undersized snaps & did'nt want to risk buying the popper type unless I had the size confirmed.

Most sewing accessories come identified by simple numbers. Like the hooks on the back of the shins are size #3 Smile
