English word for [___] part

Chaps,

I need to know how you call the little black plastic nuts you find on Suzuki bikes that fix the undertray and some other parts. It is basically a small black plastic round ring which you put in the hole and then you shove a plastic small bit through it - it clicks, widens the ring a bit at the end and fixes something - not solidly but good enough.

Has anyone ANY idea what I am trying to describe and where i can buy some?

I think it’s called a rivet.

If you copy the part number you can paste it str8 into robinsons foundry site and get the price/availability in the uk, here: http://www.robinsonsfoundry.co.uk/shop/index.php/parts/index.html

Get them from Halfords, must be cheaper than a Dealer.

In amongst the stand of things in plastic bags.

they’ve got a few names. Pop rivets, plastic rivets…bleh bleh. If you get them from a dealer they charge a fortune. They often crop up on ebay for cheap though.
