Adjuster brackets

Good afternoon,
This is my 1st post here. I'm working on restoring a pair of 30-plus year old teak folding beach chairs. The biggest issue I'm having is finding new aluminum adjuster brackets. These are 5-position with a 90 degree bend at the top with 2 screw holes that mount on the bottom of the arms. These seem pretty common on every chair from $20 to $250 chairs, but I can't seem to find a supplier anywhere on line or in person.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps hit a thrift shop and find some with good adjusters to salvage.

I hate signatures.

I'm tempted. I've sent a couple emails out to producers of new wood beach chairs to see where they get theirs, but no response. There must be a producer of these parts, just haven't found one yet.

Do you have one you could take a picture. Perhaps it's not so hard to fabricate.

I've got a local fabricator that can do the work. But these are common pieces that are used on many new wood and aluminum chairs, I just can't figure out where they buy them, and the 2 builders I've contacted aren't revealing their source. I saw a pair on a cheap aluminum beach chair at a discount store, the entire chair was only $15. I should have bought the stupid thing and cut them off!
