Hydro line in cable guide - inserts needed

I've converted the Amazon to hydraulic brakes, modifying the cable guides on the top tube to take the hydro hose. What I'm now after is a couple of plastic "wedges" to keep it in place.

Origin 8 make some called "Hydraulic Pass Thru Inserts" and they look like this...

Now - does anyone have a couple, or know where I can get them without paying £37 postage from the US??

TIA

possibly not long enough but would schradear to presta rim adapters work?

eg

failing that i bet you can find something that will work from igus bushes who do [or used to so ]free samples

starte here and have alook - will need to know what measurements you want and then cut your own slot -its plastic like shok mounts so should not be very hard to cut.

personally i would just wrap some tape to hold it and protect it

Cheers. I've been pointed to ebay, where it goes under a different name and I can get 30 for the princely sum of £1.89. Just need to wait a couple of weeks for them to arrive. Quite what I'll do with the other 28 currently escapes me.
