Where can I find a replacement fine filament thread used on the anti-skate device? It has a noose at each end. Mine broke. Any suggestions are helpful. Tia

I think you can use the finest fishing line you can find - normal line is probably too thick. Or if you know a woman (or man) with long straight fine hair and have the nerve to ask for a hair or two, you can use that. Tie knots in both ends at the appropriate distance, and there you are.

Hello.

Finding an original spare part might not be possible. But you could use a piece of fishing line or even better: transparent nylon sewing thread.
The sewing thread is not as stiff like the fishing line, but still strong enough.
