159 Boot trim fittings

I've managed to snap 3 of these when removing the boot lid trim to fit the cargo net.

Anyone know the part number / price (I'd prob order 6 or so to allow for future ****-ups!

The plastic is very brittle.

I'm afraid I haven't got the part no. for these retainers but I would like to ask how you got on fittting the boot lid net. Did you get any fitting instructions?
I have a net, but no fitting instructions. The net came with 3 different fixings, 2 screw in, 2 with expanding rubber nuts and 4 with steel nuts. I am guessing the 2 screw in type hold the elasticated opening part of the net at the top, the 4 steel nuts go along the bottom and the 2 with rubber nuts to the side. I'm concerned that if I put the 4 steel nuts along the bottom they will rub or rattle against the inside of the boot lid even with the cut out in the lids inner skin . Any info or feedback on how your installation went would will be welcome.

Can you get away with the generic pack of 6 from Halfords? Might be less hassle??
