Hobby store. Or your local auto upholstery business.

I just bought a slew of snaps on Amazon - hopefully one of them works.

Indeed! Unfortunately, I had a terrible experience with this because the P. O. or dealership drilled out the snaps with a large drill to install the belt rail.

I went to a local upholsterer and bought ALUMINUM snaps and sourced aluminum rivets for fear of oxidation. They're the "standard" size snap and readily available.

Oddly... when you were posting this, I was on the phone with a local canvas shop asking if I could stop by and have them replace one snap that came off my NOS Tickford. Luckily, they are accommodating so I don't have to buy the installation tool!

West Marine. Snaps are common replacement items on boats.

Do you have a place that repairs boats or makes boat soft tops? I brought my soft top to one of these specialist for some customization and it turned out great.
