I have a COX clip. That is why I'm looking for the Techno clip.

Dave,
the, "Seller", signed up to Stunthanger on the 6th of June. It would seem only to contact you!?

I strongly suggest, actually I assume you have already started the refund process. It takes a little time but you will get your money back.

I understand you want the product and it is all a pain in the backside. Sadly, part of buying on the internet.

I'm WELL AWARE!
I was looking for one stateside...

Good luck with that captn' btw I tried to order one and this is the response I got from Techno hobby:

"Unfortunately Glow Plug Clip is not available now and the nearest time.

Best regards, Oleksii".

So, I guess it's like many things in model aviation, it was made for a time and now it's gone.

     I have been around this stuff for a LLLLOOOOOONG time, worked at a local hobby shop for 35 years, and seen tons and tons of people's old stuff and endless adds in magazines and have never seen anything like this. Looks like it is supposed to attach to a cable, like you could change styles of clips?/ What size engine were you planning on using this one, out of curiosity?  It looks like it's intended for 1/2A?/ I just grabbed a length of .047" music wire and with a small pair of round nose pliers I bent a reasonable facsimile of what I see in the picture with no size reference. Just need to wrap some copper wire around the main body of each part, solder a wire to each part, then epoxy them to some sort of insulator to separate them, and then put some layers of heat shrink tubing around the assembly. Only took me about 20 minutes to bend the parts and make them fit a Cox .049 glow head.
    Again, what engine or plug was this intended for??

Dan,
 It's to fit a Nelson Speed glow plug fitted to my Fox .35 stunt speed plane.
Thanks I have an alternate now.

     OK. Can I ask what you found? I have some Cox heads for Nelson plugs and will check this thing I bent up on those. I have some Norvel engines that have the ceramic cylinders and "normal" glow clips don't work well on those and will see if this thing fits those also.

I altered a COX 1/2A glow clip.  Clipped the small fingers about an 1/8" and then soldered some .008" tin plate to the "base" fingers to narrow the gap so she sits on top of the Nelson plug.
