What are these push-on metal clips called? (Pictures)

What are these little push-on metal clips called? I need to get some more.

They are coming loose everywhere



Totally missing this one that goes here making my back taillight assembly loose.

Pain or damage don't end the world. Or despair, or f*cking beatings. The world ends when you're dead. Until then, you got more punishment in store. Stand it like a man... and give some back.

The dang plastic tab thing broke when I tried to push it on. However, this screw I had laying around did the job.
You would think on a 15k atv they could design something better...

Indeed brother. It's ridiculous to find basically non-removable fasteners (as in damage occurs if removed) on any vehicle, and those are the worst. The next worse are those stupid metal clips domestic auto manufacturers use for interior trim. They bite the plastic with 'hooks', and always get damaged when pulled even once, so panels fit loose even if you put a new clip, since the plastic where the clip bites gets damaged. Geez. And same with those 'push nuts', but they're easy to break too, making them the worst IMO. The Asian and European manufacturers are much better in that regard, or so I thought. Ha ha. Oh well, at least you were able to use a proper screw. Good job.
