Need right terminology!

I need a couple of gas tank bolts to clip though a hole in the frame that have an anchor on them to keep them from turning. Problem is I don't know what they are called. looked at McMaster Carr to no avail. Any ideas where to look? and what to call them?

tinnerman !

In the Factory, the old timers called them Tinnerman nuts. I don't know if Tinnerman patented them But tinnerman manufactured a lot of fasteners, A good body shop should have an assortment , usually in a metal "suitcase " box.

Nutserts
