I have a pair of climbing pants with suspenders. One of the metal thingies, let's call them clips, bent and no longer held. I attempted to bend it back in shape, but it broke. The picture will make it clear, hopefully. Is there a product available off the shelf, or something that can be made, that would work in place of these clips?
I considered bending metal wire (but it would be hard to unclip, if need be), and small carabiners (would be 5.5 cm in length, bulky and would not be comfortable under the backpack waist belt).
