    Where to buy locking clips?

    Is there anywhere online that sells locking clips in bulk?? I am in Canada, but will order from the states so long as they will ship to Canada

    None of the stores where I live have even single packaged locking clips (wal-mart and canadian tire are all I have here)

    I bought them at Toys R Us & Canadian Tire, but I'd be interested in somewhere to get them in bulk as well.

    Re: Where to buy locking clips?

    Bump. I need those clips!!!! as Im sure other techs do as well. Where are they all?

    My tech instructor is going to send me some for my clinics. but that wont solve this delema for the long term. He also mentioned that lots of stores are discontinueing selling them in single packs. Which explains why I cant find any around here.

    I have never seen them in bulk packs but only single packs.

    Can you get BSCs from Ford for free there? That is where I get most of mine. I also snag any LCs from seats being thrown away after events.

    ^ that.

    A BSC can be used as a locking clip (a locking clip cannot be used as a BSC) and Ford at one time would give out bulk quantities for clinics. IIRC they come in a little baggie with instructions (not that you need the instructions, I'm just saying).

    I also snag LC's from old seats whenever I can.

    Re: Where to buy locking clips?

    My BSC (I only really need one) came with instructions to use as a locking clip (though it is clearly a BSC. Bizarre.)

    I would try contacting the manufacturers directly. Graco is usually the cheapest in store, don't know if they'd be cheapest for a bulk order.

    Thanks ladies, great ideas! I'll try the dealerships here in town first prior to going to say graco for a bulk order inquiry.
