Sure some may have Burley trailers.

Seems pretty the snaps to hold the cover fail, couple on mine have done so already.

Burley do a repair kit, however the UK importers don't bring it in and can't find UK stock. In the US seems to sell for about $11, sadly the only place I can find one is ebay and the bandits want £20 delivered > http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Burley-Child- ... 4174d45e77

Anyone know somewhere in the UK which stocks the kit? Or know the size, sure it can't be Burley specific. Or have a kit they could flog me...

Do you mean the screw-in popper wotsits? They are commonly used on boat cockpit covers. Try a chandlery site like

@hamster. indeed.

Also assume the poppers / snaps are nothing out the ordinary. However all the ones on ebay look too small. Will follow up the boat aspect, good idea...

Are they not just 15mm press studs? Plenty on ebay, here's one http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/25-heavy-duty ... 4609813eca

The marine ones are stainless, which stops rusting, but do cost more.

Also try good old haberdashers. They're sure to be there by the buttons and zips.
