Welcome to the GWTW Forum.
Guests (non-registered users) can view the forum but are unable to post.  If you don't have anything to say then why would you bother to register?
One of the most popular sections of the GWTW Forum has long been the Swap Meet.  A great place to sell old, seldom flown kites or to get great deals on used (gently flown) kites.  Only registered users can see the Swap Meet section, let alone wheel and deal.  1000's (literally) of kites have changed hands thanks to the Swap Meet.
There are several more benefits to being a registered user, but you'll have to join our little community to find out all the "secrets".

I forget what they're called, but you can get those clips in most auto parts stores. They sell them in blister packs in the HELP ! section.

Those are called clip nuts, snap nuts, and several other names.  Most aouto parts stores carry them.

Be aware, when reattaching a bumper cover using the clip-nuts often times it's the plastic that they clip to that fails, not the not itself. Usually there's a plastic tab with some sort of hole in it that these things clip to. Myself, I use zip ties!
