The clip's the thing
To drive us crazy, quotes we have on this one metal part have run into the $2.50 range without tooling. The advantage of the clip is that it makes the entire assembly shorter. A clipless design has been prototyped by Tobias and Orianna has tried one, but there needs to be a concerted effort to make that idea work.
I'm inclined to just pay it for now and pass the price along until we can get a cheaper supply.
Now you know why we call for clips! Thanks to those who have sent them in.
