      Thank you all for your participation on the JD Forums.  We have enjoyed answering your questions, providing project advice and technical assistance on this forum for a number of years. We believe that there are now better ways to provide this service for our customers and the community. With that in mind, we have made the difficult decision to discontinue the Jamestown Distributors Forum.   Our JD Tech Team is committed to being your trusted technical resource, and we encourage you to reach out via email, phone, social, product reviews, and to post questions using the Q & A 'Ask A Question' function on all product pages. Additional information can also be found on product page Technical Data Sheets (including detailed usage instructions and application data).   Thank You Jamestown Distributors

Help with fastener name, possible options

4 posts in this topic

Could someone please tell me the name of the fastener I've pictured below.  I'm reworking the vinyl covered panels that cover the gunwales in my runabout.  Some of the 25-year old fasteners look like the one I've pictured, while the flanges of others - the parts that grip the wood at the base - have rusted away, making the fastener useless.  I'm going to replace the wood and am wondering if I should use this same fastener, or if there is a better option.

 

Thanks for your help.

@Halfastern: Thanks for the tee nut name.  Yes, that could work.  It's used incorrectly in the piece I've shown (or it's a different thing entirely), but I can do better with a tee nut and proper nut and washer.

 

@Billyclub:  Sorry the picture doesn't work for you.  It still looks good here, but it must be specific to the environment.
