Harley-Davidson has some odd names for their parts. We know the kick stand, or side stand, is called a “Jiffy Stand”. Ordered the 2 new clips that hold the front of scoop to the air box, and they are called “Canoe Clips”. Who comes up with these names?

I don't know if anyone even remembers who named canoe clips. Maybe the original company that made them, or for their first use?

But they are just removable/reusable plastic rivets used commonly in the automotive industry and other places panel fasteners are needed. Harley just uses them, they didn't name them.
