Canvas Snap Fasteners

Recommended Posts

Need some advice. I have another boat that has a canvas cover that is secured by the button type canvas fasteners. I have lost several of the buttons in the cover, and think I can handle the repair of those. There are a couple of the studs that have come out of the boat, leaving a hole in the fiberglass. I need to replace the stud, but the hole is stripped out. What would you use to secure the stud into the fiberglass?

If it was wood, I would use the wood glue and wooden match stick trick, but I am clueless on how to do the same type of repair in the fiberglass. The studs are a #8 screw with the button head on top. Epoxy? Gorilla Glue? Any ideas?
