I may have posted this some time ago, but I am still looking for the correct sockets for the top and side curtain snaps that attach to the rear bow on my 1927 Canadian Touring. The sockets are similar to the flush ones that are in the doors and body for the side curtain. However these one have an extended neck and are not flush. An eyelet on the curtain goes over this neck and then the male fasteners on the top snap into the sockets.

If the Canadian curtain snaps are like the U.S. snaps, they used an Anzo snap. I don't believe they have been made since WWII, but I've had luck finding them at swap meets.

I've tried to find them at Hershey but no luck so far. I saw an old thread on here that referred to the SNAP-R sold by Lang's and others but it is the flush socket. Larry, do you have a picture of the ones you have found?

I'll attempt to post some photos of the Anzo snaps.

Thanks Larry. Looks quite different from mine. I'll just keep looking

Dave:

I have looked for the extended neck fasteners for many years and have not been successful. The only ones I have seen were installed in original 1926/1927 roadster and touring rear bows.

I have seen some people use the extended lift the dot type fastener as a way to sandwich the rear side curtain to the rear bow, but I do not believe that to be correct.
