    The technically correct name for the piece of hardware you need is -- I'm not kidding -- a sex bolt. Wikipedia wouldn't lie. We use them in construction for various kinds of door hardware.

    Yup, have to pull the lining back. I have the lining pulled back on my '57 Olds Recording case. Slowly peel back, it's just glued in a few spots - it's not difficult at all. Some the the backing may tear a little, so just be careful and watch.

    I am going to use spray-on adhesive when I put it back together.
