    Source for Hood pins / Bonnet pins?

    I managed to forget to twist the little quarter-turn pins that hold the "hood" on...and ran over my own hood after it blew off. Ugggh.

    It's basically a few scratches, but I can't find one of the pins. Should I call TMI or is there another online source? Thanks!

    I bought a bunch because I knew I would lose a few. PM me your address and I'll throw some in the mail for you.

    I believe atom 3 and atom 2's may have different dzus connectors. best check with TMI or post a pic of one you have already

    2 and 3s do have different pins. I tried to source them from distributors but no luck at all, TMI can sell them to you at around $5 a piece, don't forget to include the rubber washers.

    Those are definitely different than the ones from the Atom 2

    see if you can find the part number on southco's website.

    DZUSŪ Turn-To-Close, Turn-To-Open Quarter Turn Fasteners - Southco

    unfortunately they have 1700+ versions. So you can ask TMI if they can give you a part number

    Then this distributor is where I get replacements

    https://estore.dbroberts.com/default.asp

    For example. these are the ones for the Atom 2 at $1.33 each
    https://estore.dbroberts.com/search.asp?p=85-16-380-16

    If the distributor does not have them, contact southco directly. They sent me 10 as a "sample" for free (though I doubt they would regularly do that)
