Clips for fairings

What are those things called that everyone uses to clip and unclip their fairings? Also I think there's 2 different kinds, what's the difference. I saw ones that are clips and others which are springs I think. I have to remove my fairings every time I go to the track to squeeze the bike into my minivan so figured this would make life much easier.

+ 1 on dzus - short of that I've seen cotter pins, or in perhaps the most creative of all track rigs - the patented Grasshopper Wingnut concoction.

(which to Nick's credit, was nothing short of brilliant)

Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

I see a dozen or so choices on this site. Does it matter which ones really?

Get the ones from LP. No drilling of fastening to the fairings. The one end slips over teh plastic and the screw parts connects the 2. I showed these to you at Auto Baun. fruitcake.

I know the length varies and that's the only thing I'm not sure of which one to get. I heard that the stock body work usually requires longer ones and racing plastics are usually shorter?
