ID:	115984. I was cleaning under the jackknife sofa in my Microlite 21 DS and I came across this little item. It is approximately 1/2" long. It looks somehow familiar but I can't quite place it. Anyone recognize it?

It looks like a rivet that never got peened. Most likely a dropsy from the assembly line.

If that is a solid piece, it almost looks like part of a grommet tool set.

Seriously, it's a whatchmacallit and it fits into the thingamajig.
I have a 21ds also. FYI the rivets that anchor my Murphy bed are pulling apart. 3 months out of warranty, suggest you keep an eye on yours.
It will be a self repair.
Safe travels!

Which rivets are pulling apart? Ours has only been up and down 20-30 times so far. How is your sofa holding up?
