I do boat tops and use the same snaps as the boss seats. They come stainless or brass nickel.
It worked on my seat.

I took snaps off ( they will not stay snaped ) Velcro works alot better.

The female side of the snap has a metal ring in it that creates the tension over the male side of the snap "lip". It is likely that the female side is actually worn out thus not keeping it snapped during the day. These could be changed out by yourself with an inexpensive snap kit bought at the ACE hardware store or taken to an upholstery shop. I'm not against Velcro but if the snow conditions are wrong, the hook and loop will ice over if open at all and then not attach fully until melted out. I would suggest using both methods if room allows. Maybe adhesive backed Velcro between the bottom of the seat and the tunnel just inside where the snaps are, and having the snaps replaced. This would give you the best of both and not detract from any visual defects since the Velcro would be hidden.
