Not sure of the proper name for these things but I'm hoping to be able to get a replacement one. The image attached shows where a flat cable is connected to a pcb, I was in the process of replacing a faulty cable and as I pushed the clip forward to secure the cable the whole clip came away. While trying to get the clip (black) back in place it has broken.

So, my question is twofold - is it possible to obtain these clips as replacement parts? If yes, where from?

Thanks in advance...

If it's just the tag at the end that is broken, you may be able to reuse as is, depending on how much movement/vibration the device gets.

As for where to get them, can't help sorry.

Unfortunately it's lost about 1.5mm of it's overall length, so a little bit more than the clip. The cable needs to be tightly clipped.
