Default Name of PART TYPE ?!?!

What is the name or type of part of the following:

They are plastic with "ribs" & hold our door skins on the metal chassis, ... they "twist" into the slots into the skins. Bigger, more aggro ones hold the rear, carpeted deck down - the deck that covers the rear speakers ...

They also hold other plastic trim in place, etc.

Hi `Zeke,
Is this a test ?...Will there be a grade ? If so, I failed

I hope one of our expert tech members will be able to answer your question

* If all else fails, call your local Chevy Parts Dept (?) & confuse them ~> Hopefully they will know , or should know (?)

Good Luck <~> Seriously

They are commonly referred to as trim retainers, fasteners or clips.

@Space: No, Sir. Definitely not a test whatsoever. I want to get all new ones so when I put my entire interior together, it goes nice & tight ... It would be fine the way they are now, but I am ****, & want new. Guess I have too much money to **** away on the little stuff.

These ^^^ are commonly called "Plastic Rivets". I hope this is what you are looking for. They are available at any parts store. Some can get expensive at $5 each. Others, you can get a box full for $5. Good luck!

Yes, they are called several different names depending on the company that manufacturers them, but I provided the most common names (the names GM refers to them as) that will bring up the most results in a search.
