    It's shaped like this right? ...

    So is 12mm the measurement of the width of the top piece of rubber, or from the top of the rubber down to where the "legs" meet the metal?

    Thanks

    You can get the whole set from Heart of texas offroad for next to nothing.

    I would go that direction, but since I'm in Canada, it'd be about 20bucks AMD which is about 30CAN, plus shipping which I always seem to get bent over on when shipping from the states

    I measured down where the legs meet the metal. The top is distorted too much from the years of use to measure accurately but I suspect that it was 12 mm when new.

    I think I paid $12 for the set of 6 from heart of texas offroad. Give them a call on the toll free number and he can tell you how much the shipping will be. I know what you mean about shipping charges...SOR reams you a new one on shipping. Thats not the case with heart of texas offroad.

    Just make them from a piece of rubber thick enough that it's hard to get through the slots. I made mine about a half inch wide and long enough to snake through all four slots. I have a friend who used some small diameter motorcycle fuel line. 2 bucks instead of 20 and no waiting for shipping.
