    And where do I get them.

    I used to have a Dodge van and when I bought it, it had these funny tacks holding the headliner up. I fixed the headliner and pretty much lost the tacks save one. Now I have another vehicle with the headliner falling down and really don't want to fix it. I would love to figure out where these things came from.

    I already hit them up and they hadn't the foggiest clue what they were. Any particular area in automotive? Like with the air fresheners or the RV stuff.

    best sig ever.....

    and never seen those weird things b4...

    but they make this glue that comes in an aerosol can that works pretty good for fabrics... they sell it at walmart and would be perfect for a fallin headliner..

    I went back up to wally world and found a girl that knew what they were. They were out of stock. I have tried the fabric stores, the crafters stores, hardware stores, and auto parts store and struck out with all of them. The girl at wally world said to check back in a week. That's been the most progress I gotten in a month. Thanks for the help.

    way way back in the day, those things were on the extra arm covers on the couch, those were to hold them in place :)

    yeah, they used to use them on furniture back in the day. My grandma still has them on her couch, holding the arm and back slips into place

    Now that I start to think about it. I think those did come out of a lazyboy my grandmother had given me. Must be having a senior moment.
