From my memory they were 7/16th headed bolts that held the cover down. A real pain in the rear removing them and refitting.

I think they are called Dzus Fastners.
They use them in motorsports alot,pommie invention.
Most race car outlets have them in diffrent sizes but hammers is right about the size

i have them on my drag bikes fairing, but i wouldn't think they would be be any good becasue of the way the back section mounts on.
have people used these ones on the bedford covers much?
