    The LNB holder for my 1.2m GSP dish snapped and broke earlier when I was swapping out LNB's. I contacted the vendor but they haven't responded. It seems like this is a fairly common holder; anybody know where I can get a replacement? :)

    I'd like to try and buy the same exact one (yes, I know I'm probably being silly but I like to replace with exact parts) :)

    I can't see what it all looks like to advise you any better, sorry. All I see in your hand is what looks like size adapters, versus the whole thing, so I could look around. It may only be available from SatAv for all we know.

    Here's a better shot of it before it broke

    Ok. I'll keep trying to reach them. They told me Thursday they'd put up a listing on Ebay for me to buy one, but it hasn't happened yet.

    Replace that one with metal one if you can. I use pipe hangers, and threaded rods on mine from the hardware store.

    This appears to be it: Replacement LNB Bracket

    It references compatibility with Azure Shine dishes, which are what the GSP dishes are...

    That's in New Zealand. Will they ship to the US, and at what price? That's likely listed in New Zealand dollars.

    That's less than $11 USD. Website says they ship to the US. I emailed them to see what shipping costs. Should be a very small package, so that could help.

    Most plastic parts can be repaired with a LOCTITE 2 part epoxy. 24 hour set and it will be like new.
