    I've found replacements for the other plastic hardware that works with my curtains....but can't find the snaps like are pictured.

    Anyone know a source???

    They are actually screw head covers. I have seen them in big box stores in bags of a dozen or so.
    I really don’t think they should be too difficult to find.

    I was in my local West Marine the other day and they had those screw covers.

    There are not screw covers, they are snaps. Sailrite . com is a source for all your marine sewing needs. You might find metal ones instead. They have a new system that uses a pop rivet and special gun to install the related fasteners.

    Sailrite says no. Here's the email I got from them:
    Sailrite Info <sailriteinfo@sailrite.com>
    Dear Ted,
    I am sorry I have not seen those sold before and we do not offer them.
    Best Regards,
    Zach Grant

    You are so right, Caboteur. I had looked for those parts on the Beneteau website in the past, and didn't see them. I don't find the Spare Parts website very user friendly.

    I just ordered them on-line.

    THANK YOU!!!

    The site isn't always friendly but the people are... if at first you don't succeed, call.
    That usually works.

    Awesome!!! I coincidentally just broke one of my curtain snaps as well (on a 373) and didn't see them on Beneteau site, West Marine was no help, and neither was my local fabric/craft store... I'm going to order a replacement (and a few spares) now! Thanks!
