I call RAM today to get some panel clips to have as spares ( tree fasteners ). He had the gall to tell me they are $10/each. "I would be embarrassed to tell a customer that", was my response to the parts guy.


So as far as I can tell the holes are 9.5 mm and the head is 23mm.
After some searching I found grey (mine) and black fasteners under this search on E-Bay:


Fir Tree Trim Clips - 9-10mm hole- 24mm head
They are $8.10 / 25


I ordered these and will repost upon arrival. I hope they are what they are described as and NO ONE on here has to ever buy them from RAM.

WOW! When I ordered them they were only $5 apiece! I laughed at them and told them to keep them!
I have not found a perfect substitute, hope you do!

The Xmas trees seem only good for one use and mediocre after that so the next time I'm doing 10-24 nutserts.

Has anyone found a suitable equivalent? My 2018 promaster was outfitted with the interior protection panel kit. I was just about to pull all the panels off to apply sound deadening to help with the road noise. After pulling out 2 of the clips, it is evident they will not be able to be re-used.

They certainly are reusable! I’ve had mine on and off multiple times. How are you removing them?
