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!

Depending on the quantities .. if you can't locate in USA PM me and I 'll see what I can do

Thanks..I'm trying to find a place in Canada that sells them but perhaps I will have to resort to ordering them from the US... thinking

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!
