Where To Buy These?

Greetings All:
I cleaned off my front porch railings of summer bird and bug abuse and the circular cover hiding the screw housing has disappeared. I did not use a power wash, so I don't know how it got dislodged. One was already missing, and now this one's gone missing too. The railings seem to be some kind of hard plastic or vinyl. I would like to buy some replacement little covers. What are they called and where do I purchase these? Attached is a photo. Thanks.

If you search for "plastic hole cover" or "hole plug" and you'll see a lot of options. Unfortunately your covers are likely made for your railing company and are not a generic part. Best would be to contact your railing manufacturer for replacements. If buying somewhere else I would measure your hole very carefully and accurately and make sure your replacement will fit.

Thanks! I love this site, I've received so much help here! I'll have to go the measuring route, this is a new to me home built in 2006, and unless it has a name stamped on it somewhere, I have no idea of the manufactures of the items.

You will need to measure the diameter of the hole, then search for that size flush vinyl plug.
