thanks Sirius but it is the female part that that clamps down and secures the tonneau that I am missing.

ah ok.

I had the same problem and couldn't find anything.
Fortunately for me my mother worked at a caravan cover making company at the time, someone there replaced/press fitted a different shaped ring into the leather and gave me a clamp, it isn't perfect and is different to the others, but needs must.

I know I'm not helping the only thing I could suggest if no one has a spare is look into boating cover fasteners

Finding the right size might be difficult, but there are lots of other cars out there that have tonneaus or softtops that fit using the same Tenax fasteners. For example my Sprite used smaller ones for both the tonneau and the hood:
