Plastic Snap Rivets in Canada?

Post  Firefly on 2/26/2013, 7:13 pm

Hi,

I noticed that snap rivets (like these http://www.efc-intl.com/encyclopedia/rivets-plastic-snap.htm ) have been mentioned in the other threads as a method of holding a grid together. I would like to try them in my SFG this year but am having difficulty finding them in stores in Manitoba...I can only find metal ones or a longer non snap type of plastic one. Does anyone know of any stores that might carry them?

Thanks!

Hi Firefly,

I typed "plastic snap rivets in Canada" into Google and found a number of companies that carry what you are looking for.

Good luck!

Were you able to find any that had a brick and mortar location? I could only find ones that were in the US, or were manufacturers that required 1000 piece orders, or ebay (but again was US based sellers).

I think Grainger is a Canadian company or at least has locations there.

I'm a bit late to the party, but yay! I was looking for those these last few days, and it turns out we have 4 locations of that company in Winnipeg, including one within biking distance of me! Yay!
