Number plate letter fixing spring washers

PostPost by: JonB » Sun Jun 03, 2018 8:38 pm

Hi

Just reconditioned my front grille. When took the letters off the spring / star washers (whatever they're called!) that hold them in place disintegrated due to rust. Now I need to buy some more but I don't know what they are called or what size they are. I tried some forum searches but nothing came up.

Any ideas where to get them?

Cheers

The usual suspects have the round ones but not at the same delivered price as eBay

Star locks, that was it.

Great, thanks! I presume the sizes refer to the diameter of the pin they will lock against.

[Edit: Yes, they do. 5mm looks to be the correct size.]
