Are those white things self-adhesive foam? Or what?

I thought at first they might be designed to protect the wall once the D-rings are screwed onto the frame - but the ring and wire would stand proud of the screwy-inny part.

Haha yes Framar! But sad to use a twisting wire for this strong article. This “gesp” is original for leader or canvas bags or bicycle-bags and the whit plate is the contra plate for the inside of the material. The connection is with rivets (as I supply my my customers) to clamp both parts with the leader/canvas between it. You can see a machine in “riveting`’ at my website www.odemssystems.com. There we do the same with the rivets but then through MDF, to mount the spring clips to produce back-plates as we use here in Europe.

Nope, those are plastic sleeves, and they go right into the bottom part of the D-Ring.

Nope, those plastic sleeves make the connection multiple stronger after riveting.

So, if I am attaching D-rings to a wooden frame, I put down this piece of plastic and then screw the D-on top of that? How does that possibly make a stronger connection? It ends up with the utilization of slightly less thread on the screw. And when the plastic breaks down in a couple of years, and shatters into pieces, then the D-ring will be loose?

What am I missing here?

ha I thought it was just me. I have received two canvases with those on there. I just figured they were extra to make them look "pretty".

That is a hanger by Ook that has the screws inserted a small amount and the screws are held in place by the plastic. Photo attached.
