I used ~ 150 silver clecos when constructing the canopy roll bar, fortunately I was able to supplement my 50 or so silver clecos by borrowing from a local bud.

Cleaveland Aircraft Tool

I just want to put in a good word for these folks. I spite of this PITA pandemic, Cleaveland did an excellent, timely job of accepting, placing and shipping my order. I couldn't be more pleased.
