Seat belt latch retainer buttons - where can I get them?

OK, I'm getting frustrated. I need some of those little plastic buttons that fit through the webbing of seat/shoulder belts and hold the belt latch up so you can grab it when you sit on the seat. I know you can just sew a knob of thread into the webbing and do the same thing but that always looks like an after-thought to me. My PT Cruiser came with a neat little two-piece button that clipped to the belt and looks like it belongs. Where can I get some?

Craft Store?

One of those craft stores may have some rivets or something that would do that for you..

My daughter's Nissan was missing one of these babies and it turned out to be a stock item. I had to go through three dealers to get one though and finally got one through by brother's area dealer on Long Island. So I would suggest trying a new car dealer for the color you need. If Chrysler doesn't stock it ,maybe another dealer would have something close.

Chrysler doesn't list it as a separate item. I would have to buy a whole new retractable seat belt to get the $0.25 button. I'll try the Nissan dealer.

I got 'em! My Nissan dealer had them. One question; did you seal the pin with a soldering iron?

My daughter just popped these on by herself,so I figure she didn't seal them. They seem to be holding ok,but I suppose flattening out the base a bit might help strengthen the connection.

Hmmm . . . The ones I got from Nissan have a pin with a big head and sharp tip that penetrates the webbing and a donut that slips over the point of the pin. The hole in the donut is larger than the pin diameter so there is nothing capturing it. Looks like that unless you heat deform the tip of the pin to capture the donut, there is no mechanism to hold it all together.

I guess you could use the head portion of a snap, that way it would be a stainless or chrome "button."
