Canvas snaps and zippers on dodgers, biminis, cockpit enclosures, and other items suffer the corroding effects of rain, dirt and grime. The result is often a mechanism that either sticks or rips the surrounding canvas or plastic.
A simple alternative to fighting with snaps or zippers is a quick dab of Snap-Stick lubricant from Shurhold Industries. Unlike sprays and liquids, Snap-Stick goes on like a glue stick and can be applied directly to the head of a snap, along a zipper or even on the barrel of a hinge without running or dripping on the surrounding area. (Remember the pool of dripping gunk the last time you sprayed a lubricating oil on a squeaky hinge?)
