    Default Not for a boat but maybe a boat fitting? Kit car bonnet clip.

    I am looking for bonnet clips something like this one. Although on a car it looks as if it might be a marine fitting. Can anyone assist please - just a name for it would help.

    The pin and ring is common enough however the one you show looks like a custom produced one. Maybe someone recognises the car??

    Check out bonnet pins and or Linch pins

    Thanks, linch pins may be the name I am looking for. No problem recognising the car, it's a Lomax kit car but I am having problems locating the owner, although he may not have been the original builder.

    Look at Car Builder Solutions website. I used them for all the parts I needed when I had a kit car. All the different types of bonnet retainer are on this page. https://www.carbuildersolutions.com/...es-and-latches

    This is the Lomax I drive currently but I am rebuilding another, which is what I want the bonnet pins for.
