Can you use Kam snaps with Babyville pliers? On the Kam website it says no, but of course it will say that because they want you to buy their pliers... But has anyone done it and does it work? I got the Babyville pliers for $8 and I don't want to buy anothe rpair, but I don't want to pay $8 for packages of the Babyville snaps either...

Yes they work, as long as you get same size snaps, size 20.

yep. I use babyville pliers. I actually finally got a pair of kam pliers and they don't press the prong all the way down :( It makes me sad so even though I have both brands I use BV pliers with KAM snaps.

Hmmm, mine work fine from KAM snaps.  I won't buy BV snaps anymore, because even though they are cute, they break too easily.  Love KAM snaps.

Oh yeah, I will only use KAM snaps. But the pliers I got are defective. The two pieces that squish the prongs don't line up so it doesn't work right. Basically there isn't really anything I can do about it but buy another pair which I can't afford right now. I bought them through a co op. I was so excited to get them too. :(

I think even though you got them through a co-op...kam snaps stands by their product. They helped me when I was having trouble with mine, and I got mine on ebay

Whoever ran the co-op should have asked for a replacement :(

Even so, you can just contact them, they have great customer service.
