Self drilling screw source

See picture below. Iíve tried looking in various places.

What are these called? Look like some type of tamper evident indicator. These hold the plasticor belly on in nimerous places.
They are self drilling with hex head, ďprotectedĒ by the plastic fingers surrounding the screw heads.

Maybe I am not sufficiently experienced.

Thanks in advance.

That's to hold it up. Need that big washer to spread the load to keep it up.

Many of the 'screws' are Ramset fasteners installed at the factory with a 22 caliber driver.
They are 'shot' into the frame and a bugger to get out.

Thanks to 5Picker. I snapped one of the heads off and felt up inside. A nice pointy powder driven item.

You can get self drilling screws with fender washers that closely match the diameter of the original fasteners.

Or you can just buy a RamSet and some fasteners to match!

A good quality neighborhood hardware store will more than likely have a good selection the self tapping screws & fender washers. Some stores may even have a small selection of screws with the washer included. I prefer Ace Hardware for stuff like that but, HD, Lowes & Menards should also have some.

You will have better luck at an industrial supply house than most big box lumber yards. In larger towns there will quite often be a fastener specialty store. I use Triangle Fastener in the Raleigh, NC area and Tidewater Fasteners in the Norfolk, VA area. If you are in the KC area Dynamic Fasteners is a great choice. Fastenal is an option, but usually they have to order stuff in my experience.
