Turnbutton fasteners.


Recommended Posts


Has anyone used these Turn-button fasteners / common sense fasteners for their tonneau / soft top?

I'm fed up with my plastic press stud types as they are getting brittle and the metal ones are very hard to pop.

I don't know how necessary it is but I'm pretty sure there's a special tool to punch holes for these fasteners. Assuming it is the same thing I'm thinking of there are multiple "prongs" mounted together, I can imagine it being pretty tricky to do and get a tidy result with a knife or whatever else you might improvise with.

EDIT: there's a hole punch tool shown further down the listing at £12.50. I've seen them going for north of £50...
