Awning parts help

Hi all. Sorry if this belongs somewhere else.

I have several A&E Elite Window awnings. These are the ones that you pull down and hook the strap to the rv to hold. They are spring loaded and roll up when you unhook them.

My long one (12'-6" over the slide windows) died on my the other day.
The 3-leged "clover leaf" spring retainer broke. Go figure, they are plastic.

Looking for a source for the retainer clips.
Dometic does NOT sell them!
Cannot find a supplier.

Thanks!

Thanks 92TNTRacing

Yes, I can buy the whole spring setup just about anywhere. My end caps/springs are fine.
Just need the clips.

So, being that I am 1,225 miles away from home, I had to improvise.
Took the short door awning off, pulled the cap/rod/spring from both ends and took the plastic clips off. Installed the clips on the long window awning rods/springs and reassembled both.
The window awning is installed on the rv and works like new. We can now travel and head home with it rolled into place.
Re-installed the door awning on the rv and got the rod/caps lined up so I could put a screw in to hold it rolled into place. It's arms also lock into place when closed.
Travel ready again.
Will get new clips made when we get back home. Think I will use aluminum instead of plastic.
