Bexar, I think WalMart carries these snaps. Mine are either riveted on the walls or sewed to the curtain material.

Thanks for the lead. These female snaps are the receivers to the snap tape sold at Vintage Supply and are smaller than their modern counterparts. Mine are either riveted to the wall at the curtain rod ends or onto these plastic slides which fit the old original curtain rods. Iím convinced there are boxes of these at some old Airstream restorstion outfit but Iím striking out so far

Looking at Walmart but donít see these. Do you have a link?

These are nothing special, they come in several sizes and.can be found at any decent fabric store. Unfortunately, there are fewer and fewer of these every year as home sewing becomes less popular, but stores that sell upholstery fabric also carry them. A search for jeans snaps or even pajama snaps might work. The holdback straps on my sliding doors are these snaps. 2012 Eddie Bauer so it isn't vintage. The female side is 2 pieces that mate when punched thru fabric or plastic. The male side is affixed to the wall via a small phillips screw going thru the center of the snap.
