These Southco quarter-turn fasteners make the PERFECT cowl attach method. I used the wing-head fasteners (-12 model) -- easy to install & remove without a tool. And since no tool, GONE are the frustrating, inevitable scratches on the cowl paint near the fasteners caused by tool slips!
parts were just what we needed at a good price and quick shiiping
How do I find the part number for the receptacles for these fasteners?
Sadly, many of the sizes do not have the size stamped on the head. Makes it a real PITA to figure out what size you have in situations where you use multiple stud sizes. Southco is slipping in quality I fear.
Trying to get correct matching parts for Southco is nearly impossible with available info. When I called, Sales did not offer to help resolve/assist.
