Some hardware stores have drawers of miss. washers, bolts and other hard to find items in the nut and bolt isle. You might have some luck finding something there. It might not match what you have but could work. Otherwise, you could contact Mokai and see if you can get them there.

Mokai made those, but this is the closest thing you'll find for purchase. You could paint black.

This one from Tom will work from mccaster plus paint it black.
I will only buy from Mokai those that cannot be sourced outside. I noticed they ship quick (withon 2 business days) but expensive. I purchased recently the Honda Gov spring and i was charge for 30 dollars. 15 for the spring and 15 shipping from NY to NC. But my fault, i just placed the order without asking for the invoice details. Rick and Maria were nice though answering questions with no hesitations. But not happy about how they sell MOKAI. There should be a product demo before asking customer orders. Is that even legal? Selling a product without first showing especially when theres a major change like this year. It's ok if they would accept returns with them paying the shipping..Maybe they do and i just do not know it. But again i love Marie, Rick, Tom and Bill as they all are part of this nice Toy that helps me release stress on weekends.

Niteshif, i tried ACE hardware and no luck.

 Sorry to hear ACE didn't have anything that would work. There are other work arounds but would require specific tools and materials. A plug cutter, a comparative plastic, countersink tool to fit a drill and the problem would be solved. There isn't any reason to pay exorbitant prices for those pieces...maybe friends have some of the tools required to fit the needs.

 You may have seen stamped washers made of brass...you know, a humped ring with a tapered center for a tapered (wrong description) screw? That might work as well and are very cheep to purchase at any hardware store.

  Then again, if you are just holding the decal, a black washer used for a faucet might work. You can find them with a tapered center for the screw. They are a bit smaller but you don't need much of a screw to hold that in place. you should be able to find those at any hardware store or Home Depot.

I agree the 6 dollars each is high. I emailed Mokai a while ago if they sell this cheaper. I only realized the high price when i was about to place an order.

I have emailed them a couple time once asking about buying a new boat. Have never had a email returned from them.

How many do you need? I can make a couple out of aluminum for $10 shipped if that will help.

I was going to say just pick up an aluminum rod with roughly the same OD as the Mokai washer and cut slices off of it, drill and then countersink.  However, if you don't have the means to cut, drill and countersink to make your own washers, then take Tom up on his offer.  That's a great price he's offering and would be much less than buying the drill bits, or buying from McMaster, or buying from Mokai!  Now if you needed 50 of them, then investing in making them yourself would probably be best.

Mokamo, I know you're trying to match the existing hardware but this might be an option you like.  I use these SS ones on my Mokai, canoe and kayak whenever attaching something new.

https://www.lowes.com/pd/Hillman-10-Count-14-Stainless-Steel-Standard-SAE-Finishing-Washers/3811477

They're in the hardware aisle and I'll use matching SS screws, washers and nuts.

The black powercoated ones look amazing, but if you don't care about matching the stock ones as much these washers work great too.

I will definitely keep that link OutdoorADV for those places that are hidden.
I'm replacing the screws that holds the plate so this one will be visible.

Bill, Will send you the $12 Bill via PayPal tonight. Thanks
