Want to change out the lock snaps on 3/8 - 1/2 oz vibrating jigs. Need some input on brands and size. Believe the brand on now are Duo Lock size 3... .not sure these are durable...what do you guys recommend? Do you find it hard to change out the snaps?

Bass pro sells these and I've used them before as a replacement. Size 2 gives you 55lbs break strength. Size 3 is 73lbs but not sure it will fit. They are a pita to change lol!

This is the most durable one made. It is also a major pain to get into place. Kind of like that brain teaser with the two horse shoes with a short piece of chain welded to them and a metal ring is floating on the chain. The puzzle is getting the ring off the chain. It can be done but it takes some time & patience.
