Magnet clip for 7" brakes

Anyone able to find this part locally or on amazon? It's Dexter 046-121-00 but when I look for it shipping ends up being $12 and clip is $1-$3.

There are a number listed using this search:

You just have to wade through the Tractor Trailer shops to find the regular trailer shops.

I tried a couple of those and they are truck trailer specific. Most places would have to order anyway, strainer was probably faster

You tried calling A&W Trailers in Darrian (630) 964-8897? Looks like they could have what you're looking for.

These clips for the 7" dexter brakes are hard to track down. One of my clips was broken on a NEW dexter axle replacement that was installed on my Trillium 4500. It took me a while to determine that was the problem.

Ajax Trailers in Warren, MI had a dozen on hand. I bought 3 or 4 from them.

So look for a utility trailer shop or horse trailer shop. There are probably several of these shops somewhere in Chicago.

I just ended up getting them from etrailer nothing close enough to be worth the drive and i can wait a few days. Just repacked bearings and replaced magnets, i had spare magnets given to me when I bought the scamp but no clips.
