Overhead console clip

Before I fashion something together I'm wondering if anyone here has or knows where to find this particular clip. It holds the front of the overhead console up. Snaps through a hole in the metal. One side broke off, as you can see in the photos. Any idea?

NAPA can get them, may even be in stock.
Body shop supply place should have them as well.
Fasenall would also have them.
Or what I do when in the scrap yard Upicks is gather up lots of clips from most makes they all use them of different types, they are handy for 100's of jobs.
Never had a Upick charge me for them but I normally have a bunch of stuff I'm buying and figured they just figured it was part of the hardware for the parts.

Oh man, if I could find a replacement that'd be amazing. I've spent all day today concocting strange ideas on how I'm going to solve this riddle. Sadly I don't have time to go to the scrapyard anymore these days, but I'll stop by NAPA or a body shop tomorrow.

Getting closer - I'm pretty sure this is called a "push nut" or "expansion nut"

A lot of cars use a plastic version of that for interior panels. I think Dorman makes an assortment in the Help! section but I can't seem to find it online at the moment.

Success! I had to go to a body shop. They gave me something that looks like this:



Couldn't find them in any auto parts shops. Basically the screw goes through and expands the two legs outward so it grips from the other side of the metal. Snapped in perfectly.

If anyone was wondering, I was redoing my headliner and overhead console. I just sprayed the console plastic, and installed new black fabric. Looks like new again.
