Nylon Push Pins, where else to find them ?

I looked in the PMCA Shop & could not find the Nylon Push Pins ( that are made in the U.S.A) that are used on gourds & tunnels. Does anyone know where to find them ? :???: Thanks in advance, Anthony

Do a web search for "auto panel retainers". No guarantees on where they are made.
These screw/rivet type retainers work better in my opinion for quickly swapping out a porch with a trap:
https://store.skmfg.com/House-Gourd-Sna ... nfo/PMDHS/ I found some of those locally at Lowes or Home Depot.

Give us a call. We have some available. They're just not listed on the website.

I saw these two weeks ago when I was looking for gourds. Are these the Push Pins you are looking for?
Let me know if you are not able to open link.
