Red face Replacing slide wiring support

I've been searching for this answer with many search attempts so I'll just ask... what are you'all using to replace the plastic support mechanism under your slide? I've looked under too many slides and hoping to find something other than what ours came with. The flexible plastic broke and the connectors to the wide plastic also broke.
Ive seen springs and foldable mechanisms but would like to get something compatible and long-lasting. Having a hard time finding the right terms to search for items online. Help

Default Wiring Support

Thanks for the link, ours has been broken for a few years but since the XT 276 is in a seasonal site it only gets put in for winter and out for summer. Might be time to change it.

Thanks for the input. It seems I don’t have but one ‘holder’ left so would have to detach the wiring… with the hope I don’t damage something. I may try the spring application if I can find the right place to hookup.
Any other ideas?
The rod that goes thru the frame is intriguing. Has wiring strapped around it that would stay close to the rod.
See the pictures Ive included. Includes my sad set up on the last pic.

Default Bought the kit from etrailer

I bought the kit from etrailer took me about half an hour to change out. Only needed half so split it easily. Used the old pivot and had to remove it because it used a screw to hold it up which is on the backside. Didnít use the looms just zip ties as thatís how it was on the original.
