And where might I get them?  Manart has never heard of them before.

As you see here, the slot has no widened point or open end, so these plugs just pop in, and the expansion caused by the screw just holds them in place.







Really great idea as it isolates the aluminum tubing from the steel of the snap stud and prevents electrolysis from making the powdercoat bubble up.  I just need more...  These were delivered on the boat - a 2006 Proline walkaround.

Hi June....I just finished an enclosure on a  Sea Ray and I had to use those. There called Vadney Clips. Manart does have them. Page 28 in their catalog. That's where I bought mine. I had to alter mine though because they were to long. Easy to do. Also, I believe Great Lakes Boat Tops has them. They make stock canvas for a lot of boat manufacturers.

One more thing.

These clips are used a lot as a retro fit because regular windshield clips don't fit, and there isn't enough room on the frame to drill and install studs. And you don't risk drilling into the glass.

Thanks guys!  That's very helpful.  I've never seen these before.  When I called Ron Hirsch (Manart/Hirsch) maybe I didn't describe them correctly.  He had no idea what they were.  I'll call him today to tell him what I was talking about.

Those clips were originally made to retrofit snaps on SeaRay windshield frames
that had the rubber insert that pushed into the frame channel. There were so
many complaints these were developed. Problem is different frame extrusions
were used and not all of them had the same depth of channel.

The part # is TWC for Taylor Windshield clip. The depth of the channel needs
to be 7/16" for these to work as intended.

They have come out with a new one with Part# NWN for Nylon Windshield Nut.

Both are on page 28 of the catalog

Dbr beat ne j first seen them on sea rays after they got rid if that lousey rubbber. Starcraft also had the insert only a different depth. I ran across a ski boat that the rubrail was fit with a slot for them also. For mooring covers.  Dumb idea on a rubrail.   Snaps

Not to jack the thread ; but in June's last photo you see the snap on the boat. We've often discussed the need / or lack of using stainless. I'm smack dab in the middle of southern Canada so no salt water etc for a few thousand miles. I've never seen a  snap that nasty. Is that "normal" for you in those environments?

Peppy; you get that down on the "lakes"?

That doesn't look like rust to me, just a bit of salt.  ::)
Corrosion usually happens when some one has used just any old screw to put them in, not with the complete pre formed one's. With the nickel plate or SS. Or as June said galvanic reaction.

I don't know about snaps or fittings but if you don't thoroughly rinse your fishing pole and tackle, the next time you pick it up, it will have corrosion or rust on it.

There cannot be a crisis next week. My schedule is already full.

I had a customer bring me a big Whaler once for enclosure repairs. There was at
least a 1/8" thick crust of salt between the windshield frame and enclosure panels.
washed it off and hit the snap studs and sockets with some Boshield T-9 and they
worked like new.

Good find but notice it says for "Water Bonnet" brand windshields which may or
may not work with "Taylormade" windshield frames.

Might get some just to have around but at $1.90 ea. I'll look for the manufacturer.
