Plastic Clips - Beneteau Portlight Shades

My 411 has plastic pop-stud thingies that secure the window/portlight fabric shades to the wall.
Anyone know where these can be sourced?
Or has anyone found a handy replacement/alternate solution?

OK - thanks - I tried some of those but the centre of the curtain pop kept fouling on the screw in the base. Need to try a few different sizes I guess.
