Atco points box cover

this could be the start of a million questions but I’m new to all this so bear with,on my recently acquired Atco kickstart the points cover is held on by a stud which protrudes through it and is secured by a nut,all the ones that I have seen illustrated and in videos etc are secured by a spring clip on a post.It probably doesn’t matter I’m just curious that’s all.Are there two different fixing methods?
