does anyone know what the small little clips you can use to mount glass or mirrors into a rabbet are called? They are a thin metal with a sharp point and a couple clips to hold the glass in. My dad used them on a grandfather clock and I want to use them in one of my projects but I dont know what they are called to begin looking for them.

I always called them glass points. You lay them on the glass and push them in with a flat bladed screwdriver.

do you know where I can find them? Lowes or HD have them? Or do I need to look at a specialty store like Chesapeake Woodworkers?
