Help Identifying Plastic Snap

I've searched everywhere but these French-made boats have some hard-to-find hardware...

Please help identify these snaps (and a place to purchase) located all around the exterior windows of our Bali Catamaran. We'd like to fabricate some Phifertex Covers and attach using these factory installed fasteners. They're approx. 12 mm wide.

Also - if anyone has experience with Phifertex - is there an adhesive we can use to hem the edges in lieu of sewing?

Much thanks in advance!

Re: Help Identifying Plastic Snap

Phifertex is a mesh fabric made from 100% vinyl-coated polyester, coated with Microban.

To bond vinyl-coated and vinyl-laminated projects, Sailrite recommends HH-66 Vinyl Cement. This high-quality, fast-drying resin adhesive will bond laminated fabrics to themselves and other materials and can also be used for bonding urethanes, vinyl foams and films, leather and metals.

Perhaps you could send this photo to Bainbridge International. They're pretty helpful.

Help Identifying Plastic Snap

Donít know if you found an answer but these kind of look like snads (spelled correctly). Usually they are self adhesive but I donít see a reason why a screw couldnít be used. They are the top two rows in the photo
