Apple II+ cover clips

Apple II+ cover clips, the black rounded-rectangular (low resolution velcro) things that hold cover in place. Anyone know where to get some, aside from ebay. I'm not paying $19 each, and don't mind researching and waiting for a more reasonable price.

You are looking for plastic Velcro fasteners; a craft store is a good start.

This type of fastener is used on my EZPASS tag. When I needed replacements, I found them at the local craft store. Granted, I am not going to go in and ask for an ST-506 interface card.

These are not velcro. And I'm not looking for velcro strips. These are stiff plastic things that work similar to velco, but not quite. Hence the joke of (low-resolution velcro).

I know the plastic part, our messages crossed.

Are you looking for a substitute or originality? If you want originality then you are going to have to search for it and pay the asking price.

Another thought. A sign store may carry these.

apple2lives,

That is not neccesarily so...

Keatah,

Like I said, someone had some for sale on eBay for what I thought was a reasonable price.
I'll be right back with the link.

They were $7.00 each and he still has 5 left.

Thats a whole lot better than $19.00 each. Smile
