Name That Clip!

Postby Rasputin » Tue Mar 22, 2016 4:01 pm

On my Piaggio B125 the bodywork panels are held in place by self tapping screws that go into a spring type flat clip. Any idea what the right name for these clips are so I can buy some please?

I have now ordered some U Clips and no longer search for "springy, clippy thingamajigs for self tappers". (Though that may well be the Internationally recognized name for them) :}:)
