Or RS? They sell all of the useful bits that Maplin used to. And cheap enough, with free postage.

Thanks for the links.

The holders are almost what I'm looking for but don't have the correct connectors. I'm looking for the flat 'pad style' connectors.

If I can't source any with the connectors that I'm looking for, then I might buy a couple of the linked ones and attempt to modify them to suit.

I'd try contacting Hope first.

service@hopetech.com

I'd read of several occasions where they have helped people out free of charge for small items. So when I lost the barrel nut from one of my Hope 1 brackets last year I sent them an email saying could i have some payment details so that I could purchase one from them. I added my address at the end of the email just in case.

Sure enough although they didn't respond to my email a barrel nut arrived in the post a week later FOC.

Here's another example

They did something similar for me and refused payment, so I asked them if they have a favourite charity. "Yorkshire Air Ambulance" came the reply, so I pinged them a fiver.
