Where to buy cartridge clips/tags in Europe?

Post by Rallen » 25 May 2019 12:18

Any webpages, links or ebay sellers? The only type I can find are these, and they are too long/big to fit my SME S3 with 2M Cart:

Some have been known to make their own by dismantling computer "D"-style sockets and using the clips inside. It involves breaking molded plastic, I was curious what they looked like and found a hammer and chisel (oriented in the direction of the pins) was able to break the plastic and release them.

Zavfino 1877Phono FitClips or VintaClips are great quality and available in Europe. Both are gold plated high purity copper and the VintaClips are really short too.
