    Default replacement seat clips " darts"

    Anyone got a line on aftermarket or automotive replacement seat darts which will work on a 2003 sportster. OEM replacements are about 4.50$ each!!!

    Take one of the old ones with you to any good auto parts store and they will match it up for you. They generally run around fifty cents each or so.

    Thanks, but already tried NAPA and Auto Zone. Most auto applications are too small in diameter.I'm going to put snap in plastic bushings in the holes to reduce the diameter so I can use the auto clips. Thanks again.

    scgck- have you been following me??! I am on the same quest for my Utopia! Today I went to NAPA and Auto Zone also- same story- the Chrysler darts are the right diameter but are too short. I even went to a body shop confident I would be walking out with my new darts. WRONG!! They suggested Napa, gee... thanks!

    I can still use my old ones but they are stressed from removal and bent- would have been nice to put my new $700 upholstery in with new darts!

    I am still searching and if I find them I will post.

    Don't Sink,
    I might have a solution. I went to True Value hardware and found some snap in plastic inserts which reduce the dia. of the hole in the hull to about 1/4 in. I enlarged the hole in the hull to 3/8 in. to accept the inserts. Now if we could find a longer automotive "chrismas tree" clip we're in business. Good luck.

    I found some replacements! But you have to buy shutters for your house to get them!

    I had to replace some shutters on my house- I bought some shutters at Home Depot and when I opened them they had the "tree" clips in there to attach the shutters to the house! Same length too! I laughed my as* off when I saw them.

    They are slightly smaller then the diameter of the holes but your True Value product should do the trick.

    I am going to use some of them and some of the useable old ones. If I have any left over I will let you know and I will mail them to you.

    If you need shutters they were $30 a pair!
