Where to find "push nuts" for Suburban SW6

I had to remove the 'frame' from the tank when performing repair to my water heater and cannot locate replacement push nuts - they dont even appear in the SW6 parts diagram... Anyone know where I can get some or if I am calling them by the correct name?

You just need to measure one that did not break.

thanks realebill - the ones you found on amazon are the closest yet.
As the picture shows, these are not small, they are 1.25-1.5" inside diameter and everything I found from Grainger, McMaster etc are only up to .5".

Ill also try Ace

Anyone have contact info for Suburban? My google searches arent yielding info...

I had the same problem finding "push nuts". Very expensive at trailer parts dept. Found them in Home Depot. Very cheap. Not exactly the same but they will do.
