Instructions on how to replace Aplix (hook and loop) tabs:

You will need to use a jeans needle to be able to penetrate the Aplix and avoid skipped stitches. Use a strong cotton or cotton/polyester blend thread.

 

For waist tabs:

1. Cut off rounded end of old Aplix tab, taking care not to cut the fabric.

2. Rip out the stitching from both the top and bottom Aplix tab.

3. Center new male tab on inside of cover or diaper, and stitch from top of tab to bottom to secure.

2. Center new laundry tab over stitching holes, and stitch 1/8 inch from edge to secure.

 

For the Aplix strip:

1. Rip out the stitching from the Aplix strip, and cut off near the edge binding.
