They are called "lift the dot" fasteners.

They also do threaded versions, against self tappers.

If you are replacing them to fit with existing hood other half, then be wary because new IVA compliant ones have a smaller ball and there are different lengths.

I have used a firm off Ebay called Acorn Canvas in the past, they are reasonable and quick delivery

Nothing is easy in this life. Very Happy

There are various different versions of these and I'm not sure they're all interchangeable. My Scamp has Tenax fasteners.

Thanks for all the info guys, seen them on "E" bay after posting and placed an order , so here's hoping they are correct, Weatherproofing required up in this neck of the woods.
