Removing snap corrosion

Wire brushes, whether on a Dremel or brush may work but can also fray the canvas/Sunbrella material and remove plating from the brass. My preference is a pointed corner of a red or green Scotchbright abrasive pad pushed into the cap and rotated back and forth, followed by zipper grease or chapstick.

Try cleaning the corrosion using a damp rag with a loose paste of a bit of Barkeeper's Friend on it. It incorporates a bit of phosphoric acid which very quickly dissolves the corrosion chemically. Then you can easily maintain fittings with lubricants or waxes. Cheers
