Fastener identification help

Postby Sportbiker » Sun Jan 31, 2016 9:12 pm

Got some Armour Bodies used and they have this retainer riveted on. I've looked through the DZUS catalogs and not found a match. Anybody have any idea what these things are? I'd rather just get the fasteners needed instead of removing the existing retainers and putting new ones on.

A little fuzzy in the photo, but it looks like it might be similar to the old school DZUS, maybe slightly abused? :dunno:

EDIT: on another few looks, probably not. Seems like it has angled edges rather than tabs, yeah? I feel like I've seen this before, but can't put my finger on it.

The entire retainer is slightly rounded so it doesnt sit flat on the inside of the bodywork. Probably hard to tell from the pic. The 4mm(?) hole at its peak has three bits of metal which look like they might grip bolt threads. But I don't have any that seem to fit.

I found out what they are: Sharkskin fasteners. I have a feeling the seller forgot what kind of glass he had. Why? Besides fasteners I mentioned the bodywork fit without modification, which AB said would be required. I think I lucked into a hell of a deal. That said the glass for my 636 AB is as sturdy as the beemer's skinz. Different on the inside but feels roughlythe same.

The tip of the bolts on these looks kinda like a hammerhead shark, yeah?

I think I found three clip-on fasteners like this in one of my misc parts boxes while rummaging around for something else...probably why I felt like I recognized the fastener originally.

will snap a pic of my new fasteners when I have time so you can compare. can't remember offhand. Did get some interesting washer type things with the fasteners so may be asking questions about how to use them too.

Little plastic washers, like these?

If so, they're for retaining the bolts on the bodywork, like this:

Definitely those fasteners. Thanks for the lead on the washers. Odd part is they came with fasteners and not the retainers. The latter are riveted to the bodywork already.

That's how I'd expect them to come, unless I'm misunderstanding what you're saying. Fastener/bolt goes through one bodywork section, retaining washer goes on that...then the retainer/clip goes on the other body section, so that when you pull the body parts apart, you don't have loose bolts you have to keep track of -- they stay on the removed body section.

Do you want these ones I have? I'm never going to use them -- I have DZUS on everything in my garage. They're either getting tossed back in a box to be forgotten about again, or getting tossed in the trash.

Yes, would love to have a spare or two, thanks. I'll always carry them to track if someone is in need.
