They're probably under a dollar or two at the dealer.

Yeah maybe but I'm in Buttstick manitoba 250km from the dealer so just thought I'd throw that out there to see if anyone was producing them there is a "Things" pattern available if somone wanted to print their own and I'd rather pay a homegrown business during pandemic than a prosperous corporate entity at this time.

Just a thought ...... Is there any way you could contact the $tealership and describe in as  much detail as you can (year and model of car) and include the photo that you posted above?  They may just do an over-the-phone debit and package and ship them to you.  No travelling needed.  Doesn't hurt to ask. :)

I probably have a set.....$40 plus shipping.....sounds fair no.....you did say home grown business.....didn't you....lol  I think I saved them when I scrapped my wreck of a car with the Clever-End on it.....maybe...?

IF I get half a minute to spare I'll search for them.....I did bag everything and chuck it all in the shed until needed. But don't remember actually keeping or saving them.....But they must be gold plated by the cost of them...lol.

So many smart owners assume the dealer can only be the source of high priced parts, well sometimes they are and other times they're not. 

 

I remember years ago someone lost the rubber ends from their 450 parcel shelf bars and went to great lengths to source some from somewhere else and eventually found some.  But they were three times as expensive as the ones I bought at the dealer.

 

+1 on the phone the dealer idea.  Or email.

That is good to know Thank you I don't mind shopping around and that is the great thing about capitalism it gives us options and researching them is not always a bad thing
