Replacing window protector cam lock screws

Has anyone replaced those half turn fasteners from the wrap around window rock guards? My DH wants to change them and finds them a real pain to use.

That fastener is called "Dzus"

It's common in the aircraft industry.

Can you post a photo of which fastener you have?

Most any aircraft repair shop will have them.

Or call Aircraft Spruce.

hi m&b welcome...

this sorta depends on era of stream....

for the last 30 years (maybe more)

the cam screw wheel mentions is referred to as a...

'turn fast stud' by a/s....

looks like this is but one vendor,

Quick Access Fasteners | Southco

((see the first window with 'quarter turn' fasteners...))

and the a/s parts store has them IN STOCK, or did recently.

some texas dealers might have them or could order them 4 ya.

cheers
