    My Tivo Hd feet have disintegrated. I know I can buy a new set from weaknees for $14, but I went a different way, and 3d printed feet from a file provided by

    Tivo HD replacement feet by MeisnerX

    However, the original plastic rivets that held the disintegrated feet, also disintegrated on removal. So now I have to find some plastic rivets to attach them. Weaknees doesn't sell the rivets without the feet.

    Does anyone know where I can get suitable plastic rivets?

    The feet on my HD also fell apart. I just bought rubber disks that had a sticky backing on them.

    You have a PM, except this new forum software calls it a "conversation"--look in the upper right hand corner and click on Inbox

    By the time you have 3d printed the new feet and tracked down the plastic rivets, the time you have spent is probably worth more than the $14 weaknees is charging for the replacements. I got the replacements from weaknees, worked perfectly.
