Just got some new Vibrex panel fasteners to replace my perished, missing and soggy originals.
Anyone know just how the grey plastic bullet end is supposed to fit? I had imagined it to be a tight push-fit, but there's no interference at all between it and the pin...
I guess I could glue it...

Strange, it usually is an interference fit......you could glue it or flatten the end of the pin so as to expand it out a bit.

I just bought some new Vibrex Locks from SAV and the gray bullet-shaped pieces do NOT interference-fit and stay on. When I removed original locks, the old gray pieces DO fit properly on the new hardware. Meh.
