Hi,

I have been re-doing my 79 Boler all summer. In hunting for other things I found these little plastic caps at Rona that are perfect for cover the replacement rivets for the cabinets and cupboards. If they are white

I didn't want to use acorn nuts, I wanted it to blend in.

Thought I would share with you.

Boler for life!

Graeme

Those are nice! I might have used the same ones as outside, but being connected means I wouldn't loose half of the cover. Sweet. Where did you get them?

Rona is a Canadian hardware and building supply chain, much like Home Depot. They only have stores in Canada (plus the French islands of St.Pierre and Miquelon).

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.

Thank you for explaining that! Some of us are geographically challenged.

Co-incidently, I just sauntered past the St. Pierre RONA a week and a half ago. They have a Home Hardware too! Prices in Euros, of course.

so if I want to find those things here in Utah what area of the store would I look. Screws and bolts?
I'm sure we can find them in Home Depot or Lowes

Thanks for sharing this

Ron

Yes, Ron, I've found this general sort of thing - such as caps for screws used to assemble furniture - with the specialty fasteners at one end of of the nuts-and-bolts aisle at Home Depot, Rona, and similar stores (of which Lowes would be one). I've also found that the staff generally has no idea what I'm looking for or what they have, so allow some searching time...

I found them in with the kitchen cabinet hinges and knobs. Never really realized that Rona Stores were only Canadian. I will see if I can find the package and a company name. I am sure I kept it. If not I will buy another package. If you can't find them, let me know, I will mail them to you.

Good tip!
Another potential place to look increases the odds of finding this kind of obscure stuff, even in other stores.

Thanks again
The SQUARE-DRIVE Screw Covers and TAP-CAPS® Screw Covers were what I was finding with the furniture hardware in other stores.
