    View attachment 71965 Are the plastic parts for these retainers available? I have one broken plastic clip and assume a replacement isn’t available but wondering if anyone else found a way to keep the wire onto it.

    If you still have the broken end, using liquid superglue not gel, apply it to the crack then immediately, completely cover it with baking soda. After 10 sec brush off the excess baking soda. It will harden the joint hard as a rock which you can sand or file.

    I have been looking on Ebay for years and have never seen any of them for on Ebay. They are not being reproduced due to being a one year only part. Hopefully, you will be able to repair it like COPO mentioned in his post. Good luck.

    It’s a miracle you have any. Only one broken and a donor makes you the guy that burned up all his luck lol. Good luck with the transplant.
