When your mini is down and out because of the broken clip, try to fit it back and hold in place with a T-rap.
These clips should come with every new mini I think, otherwise ask PP3DP and they will ship them to you.

Where are you located?

Im in Reno Nevada USA.
These clips are as fragile as an egg shell. I was hopeing someone would know of a place to get them quickly like ebay or something.

Hi jeeplvr,

I think Subamatt is suggesting that you make a temporary repair to the existing broken clip, then you can print some more for yourself.

cheers

Yes, it was suggestion to temp fix the problem. Then you can hopefully print at least one clip. I also recommend that you contact PP3DP for original clips for future repairs. :)

I can print a couple for you and mail them to you if you pay for shipping, probably around $6 for USPS Priority Mail which should take 2 days.

If I send them today (thursday) you should get it on saturday.

The zip ties worked for now. If I can find an stl file of the clips I will print some. Thanks for the responses.
