Where to get Brake Line Clips?

Had to replace a couple of sections of brake lines because they corroded out. They were the left & right lines between the tee fitting on the diff to the rear cylinders.

The new lines don't have the armor (spring like winding around the OD of the tube). Now the little bolted metal clips that secure the lines are either too large (because of missing armor wrap) or are corroded out.

Where can I get replacements?

The guy at the parts counter looked at me cross eyed when I asked. I thought about just making some out of sheet metal, but I don't want to put that much effort into it. Thought about using zip ties as well, but those prabably wouldn't hold up too long.

What have you brake line plumbers done?

Thanks,

These things are great.. they are called P Clamps.. or P Clips...



You can get them at Lowes in the bolt row.. A good one to get is the 3/8". I used a LOT of these in my rebuild...

Thanks,

Googled P-clip and found similar clips that are electrical loom clips with vinyl coating. Bag of 10 - 1/4" clips is $2.25 Linkie

Picked up some of the metal one with the rubber at Lowe's today. $1.27 for package of two clips. They also had some in nylon. Bag of the nylon ones (at least a 1/2 doz) was $1.27 as well. They only had white nylon, but I think I've see black nylon as well.

They were in the fastener isle, in the drawers for "hard to find". They also had a reasonable assortment of other "auto chassis" fasteners that I didn't realize a hardware store would stock.

I lernt som'n.
