Help identifying hardware.

I am new on this forum, please excuse me if I do something inappropriate.

I am planning to reupholster some Golf Cart bucket seats.  The bucket seats are molded metal base.  There are two types of clips used to fasten  the material to the metal base.  I have not been able to put a name to these clips, which makes it difficult to find a source.
I am uploading a couple of pictures, can someone help me identify these clips?
Thanks
Boyde.

I tried to upload from my computer, but i was having difficulty getting the pics to upload, first too big, then after I resized them, the forum could not link to my drive.  So I read the how to use this forum and it suggested that we should use photobucket.  i agree it is a real pain, seems to work better on an Ipad than a laptop.

Anyway can you help me identify those items?  Is there a name you can give me?

Regards

Those instructions were written several years ago when Photobucket wasn't such a pain. I tried to click on your links, and got ads stacked on top of other ads.

We're having better luck right now linking pics to google photos.

Welcome to the forum Boyde. I have never seen anything like your clips. But then I'm a furniture guy. Hopefully one of the folks more familiar with this can help.

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

I don't suppose you could string together a bunch of these clips?

I shall post a picture of the bucket seat and a close up of the edge/frame where the clips hold the stretched fabric secure.  I expect to do this tomorrow, please stayed tuned.

Thanks for your help so far.  Please do not stop.

Here is a link to a series of photos (I hope) that might help you visualize how the clips are used.

The chair clips that Dennis shows in his latest post might just do the trick. They are used in automobiles and office chairs. If the size works you may have something that works. Other than those I was thinking of glue. Contact cement will also work if it is workable.

I just got to thinking, I worked for a bus conversion company for a short period of time. We had to recover some overhead metal components with vinyl. This was done with heavy duty contact cement. It wrapped around the frame and was glued to the inside, like your seats. Just a thought if you cannot find clips.

I'm inclined to agree with the glue. Since nobody else can identify them, I imagine they were made specifically for this purpose/job. And contact cement is seriously strong stuff.
