screen clip thingys

Not sure what these type screen clips would be called but I need some more as shown in the pictures below. I would call them "screen clips" but when I do a internet search for screen clips every other type of screen clips seems to be shown except these type. They are two-part pieces of metal hardware that the metal tabs on the one clip piece fits into the other mounting piece so the clip piece can spring tightly back and forth for either holding the screen frame around the window or removing it. Neither of the two hardware stores in my small community has anything like these. Any help with tracking some down would be appreciated. Thanks.

Window Screen Hardware

This looks similar:

Yeah those indeed look similar. The Amazon link to them (included in the link you provided) is below. Yeah I notice in the details about those it says "Screw or rivet on style" and also mentions "screws included". And they're apparently "sliding" which I suppose would be fine if it works but by looking at the picture of them it doesn't really show how/what slides. Can't really tell where the screws (or rivets) go either. There's that square looking extrusion but not really a hole shown where the screw (or rivet) would go through. I need to replace quite a bunch of those type shown in my picture(s) because they're missing but would want to make sure before I order a bunch that the type you found would work just as well.

That's an ancient type clip. There are many others that you can find here: SWISCO.com: screen clips
The clip simply holds the screen in place. These should be available at local hardware stores.

Other types could work, sure. But was hoping to find what I was looking for. And did so all's good. Thanks
