The logo 1 (Fig. 1) described is of a one-piece construction having two facing elongated protruding tenons 2, each tenon having inclined planes. The plane 3 is for guidance into the slot 4 (Fig. 2) of mounting surface. The smaller plane 5 provides the snap or holding of the logo to the mounting surface. on an inclined surface assures the logo of having a fit with no rattle within its mating cavity 6. The tenons 2 are also offset to one side to guarantee orientation of the logo during assembly.
