Title: New (to us) hot tub
Post by: rednex on June 12, 2018, 11:15:34 am
Morning All, pretty new to all of this and I am hoping someone can point me in the right direction. We have recently picked up a new to us tub. (Spatec, Balbo system in it). It's in really good shape and I am working to get it hooked up and make sure everything is running right.

Something I have an issue with, the plastic/fake wood panels of the casing, the person before me over tightened and stripped out a number of the rubber plug nuts that help hold the panels in place. Does anyone what these are called? Maybe a part number or where I would go to get replacements?

I have a few pictures and will try to find out how to add them here after I post.

Thanks
Dan

Looks like a custom piece specific to your hot tub manufacturer.  I've never heard of spatec.  I would try to locate a dealer for your specific brand and send them this picture.

Thanks Sam, I ended up contacting the guys at spadepot.com (thanks you your suggestion). they don't carry this part, but the guy told me that the part was a "motorcycle windscreen fasteners". Did an amazon search and found the following and I think I should be in good shape, they are the same specs as what I have at home.

Thanks again

I have never seen that type of fastener. Itís actually very cool I could see some great applications on a kayak and other water craft.
