Certainly a generic clip that was used on other things as on Trojans and where the tubular steel seat has been fitted. Of no use to the Heinkel angle framed seats that proceeded it. I think these were used on the Frisky as well? Worth a sniff I would have thought. I have a tin full of them from scrapped cars but I am owning them as it is surprising how often they turn up on other things. Even used to hold wires on.
