Perfecto SHO strip light

I'm looking for parts for a Perfecto SHO strip light. It uses a 55 watt compact twin tube fluorescent bulb.
I'm looking for the ceramic like piece that clips into the reflector and allows a metal clip to be attached and inserted in between the twin tubes keeping the tube level in the fixture.

The original part has degraded and the bulb will not stay level or completely inserted in the 4 pin socket.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks

They are now Marineland. I contacted them and they stated no parts were available and I should buy a new light.

I'm guessing/hoping Perfecto sourced the parts from someone and that parts are still available.

Sorry I agree w/ them and secondly, finding parts is unlikely..
now it is just a clip, work arounds are probably possible.

Never even found an image of the unit..

"parent" of Marineland..or who knows nymore..

I guess I'll try to make a part. Any idea of any material that is a heat insulator, easy to shape and easy to find.

Thanks

Interesting.

I'm thinking a couple of inches of .5" x .5" of solid fiberglass might work. I've got another light that has 4 of the same clips that will need replacement.

Thanks
