    Bought a used Kayline softtop (2nd gen). It didn't come w/ all the self-tapping screws w/ the buttons on the top of them (not sure of the exact names of these things). Any idea where I can find these things? I've tried Home Depot, Lowe's, PepBoys, Advance Auto Parts...no luck. Hoping I can find them locally before calling the manufacturer.

    I found some at Sears Hardware down here. I had to hunt down the other end of the snap that’s in the top (I think the tech name is a doohickey) at a hobby shop and they had a few of the self tappers next to ‘em on the shelf. That’s the only two places I looked down here, any of the others I can think of you’ve already check out.

    Good luck.

    If they don't work try a boat store or a place that makes boat tops.

    Places that sell and install tonneau (sp?) covers should have em also.
