Default What are these nuts called and are they replaceable

This is a really decent seat that fits the Wheel Horse A-60 I have. I want to use it BUT 3 of the nuts are missing out of the bottom of the seat.1 fell out rusted and it appeared to have some clips to lock it in or something.BUT if these are replaceable,I need to know the correct name for them so I can find them. Thanks for the help.
This pic shows 1 of the nuts in it's place to the right,and the left 1/2 inch square hole is where another should go.

Google weld nuts(Granger) or captive nuts. This will get you started.

Thanks folks! got the info I needed thanks to you alls help.Now I just gota determine 1/4 or 5/16ths before I order them.
20 bucks is alot for 12 nuts BUT the cheapest I can get a low back seat for the machine is about 45 so to have it's original seat with the horse logo on it for 20,and have the spares,I guess it will be worth it.

If it wasn't for the big square hole to fill I'd go with the "Riv-Nut" or "Nut-Sert" pop-rivet style nut insert.

With that big hole I'd probably just spot-weld a nut to it and call it done.
