balkamp makes a similar fastener that will work from Napa. It is slightly different in that it is not a push pin but uses a screwdriver. It is NAPA part #665-2383. They are about $5.00 for a half dozen.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

Lowes carries a variety of them.

Sometimes I'm facetious.
Or ironic.....

These different ones have to be cheaper than the Suzuki snaps. I bought a couple this spring at the shop. Figuring I could get at least half a dozen (I think I had 9 or 10 bucks in my wallet) easily, I only bought 2. I asked the lady at the desk if they were gold plated because I thought they should be, with the Suzuki rep standing right beside me. What a rip-off...:beatnik:
