Snap fasteners ( Press studs)

I have had two snap fasteners pull out of the cabin roof where the privacy shades clip onto. Is there a kit I can get to replace these or should I take it somewhere to get fixed?
Cheers
Colin

Is it the male or female fitting that comes out? How is it fastened to the coach roof?

It is the male part that is attached to the cabin roof lining. A privacy curtain clips on .
I pulled two of these out recently when I unclipped the curtain. Would like to know what tools I need to replace.
I've looked on youtube and seen snaps fitted to a hard metal surface using a die attached to a pop rivet gun, maybe there's something similar for fabric?

You can purchase male snaps that have a screw which would probably screw right into the overhead. Probably have to go to a marine supply store or web site. (worked in a boat yard for many years!)
