How to Repair the Snap on a Louis Vuitton Wallet

by Sarah Coennen

Louis Vuitton is a popular designer fashion label, specializing in making all kinds of leather goods, such as purses, wallets and shoes. Several of Louis Vuitton's wallets are held closed with a snap button of the post variety. When the snap on the wallet breaks off or falls out, there is a simple solution that you can use to fix the snap.

Items you will need

  • 3M 77 glue in a tube
  • Both parts of the snap button
  • Damp cloth or baby wipe
Step 1

Clean off the fabric underneath the snaps. You can use a damp cloth or a baby wipe.

Step 2

Clean off the back of the snap, as well. Make sure you clean both sides of each part. Again, you can use a damp cloth or baby wipes.

Step 3

Place a dab of 3M 77 glue on the back of the snap. The location where the back of the snap touches the fabric will dictate where you will need to place the glue.

Step 4

Repeat on the back of the other snap. Allow at least one hour to dry completely.

Tips

  • There are other glues that you can use, but chances are they will not hold as well as the 3M glue.

Warnings

  • Do not use abrasive glue or glue that is not meant for fabric or leather as it may damage the designer fabric.
