Is there a bracket that holds the pull handle in position?
mine is quite loose, it works fine but sort of "floats" above the fuse box rather than being fixed to anything solid

I believe they are refinishing some older parts and selling for $$$
Just place a WTB here and pay $10-20 for the part.

I need one but I'm in no rush so after you get taken care of ...

I was holding one of those in my hand last weekend. Let me look and see if I can find it. If I find it, it is yours.
