Default Roberts R200 Handle retaining clips

Evening all.

Does anyone know what the proper name is for the little round springy push on clips that retain the handle pins on the R2000/300/500 ) in fact most Roberts radios from the early 60s)?

I've searched for spire clips but these tend to be rectangular and accept a self tapper.

Any help as to what they're called and/or a source would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Rob

I've looked at starlock washers, they are similar but have too many fingers. They may be my only option though. Time to get the digital callipers out !
