I have orderd new similar plastic ones for cheap on Ebay.

A few easier and simpler suggestions here,

viewtopic.php?f=17&t=18898&p=136534&hil ... on#p136534

I did mine in 2015 and they still haven't broken and I am in and out of the boot daily.
The main problem is that the clips have to be pliable and there are very few metals that are, unless in strip form.
Various plastic cable clips can be "adjusted" to suit as can tool clips similar to the ones I used.
Basically it is a bit of trial and error to get the desired results.
Just put on your Heath Robinson head and you can come up with a workable solution similar to those already "invented" as shown in the link above.
A visit to your local Ironmongers shop and for a few coppers you have a solution that will last a lifetime.
