For the snaffles, I would be leary if they are that loose even, from what you are describing...I know they aren't used to help stop the horse, but if they are loose enough to flip up and into the horse's mouth and get stuck there, that could be problematic. They should be adjusted so that there is no chance of them slipping over the lower lip.
On the curbs, the 2-3 finger rule is generally pretty good.
