Greetings all,

So I recently picked up an old Dodge hula lamp. Working and everything. Well, almost. I seem to have lost a piece off it. It's one of the clips which attaches the skirt to the hula mechanism. The part looks basically like an oval washer with two holes. One hole is soldered into the turning peg on the lamp, the other hole has a freely rotating clip attached which then slides into a couple of slots on the skirt and folds over to secure it. Photos:

Anyone happen to know where I can find one of these? I'll owe you a beer. Or a Zombie.

Thanks, guys.

Sure. Sorry for the crappy picture quality, I'll have to take a better one.

And thanks for the suggestions, everyone. Probably gonna try to make it myself.
