    Fastners

    I'm looking to replace some of my fast ers while it's in bits. I've sourced star washers and now I'm looking for some clip fastners. A couple have snapped over time where bolts have become seized.

    Any ideas where to get an assortment?

    You tried the inevitable bay of fleas? What, specifically, are clip fasteners?

    I can't get the description right to find them.

    They are a nut but a clip so they stay in place?? There must be a name, speed clips come to mind

    Not the type made of spring steel? I think they are called 'spire clips'

    Where can I find an example on the Mille?

    It's too late to go take stuff apart tonight but I think that is what they are called. Google 'spire clips' or have a look on ebay.

    Like these? http://www.fixingsupplies.co.uk/clips/spire-clips.html

    Chimney nuts, speed fastners.

    Spire fastners are more for self tappers but very similar.

    Sometimes called 'lug nuts' or 'u clips' or 'u nuts' too.

    Plenty of them all on ebay.

    A15CRo, how many do you need?

    I've got quite a few lying around in my box o' bits!

    I think they come in 2 sizes on the RSV too so PM me with your requirements and I'll see what I can come up with.
