    just don't "rip" the doors off. i ripped some snaps apart violently to see what would happen and they do lose peel strength immediately ( the socket loosens). however if you un-snap them normally/carefully they should last a long time. i opened and closed one snap 250 times and couldn't tell any change in their strength.
