Got the snap on but it didn't work great. I feel the wider one would work better given it is a straight jaw on it with no hook to slip over. There seems to be plenty of room for it. I assume the narrowness of the hazet is to get hooks to slip by the ball part? It worked on one but I ended up reverting to popping off the rocker to crack it with a socket. I do appreciate the tip though Bill, just adding what might work better but of course I might be missing something to anyone about to try it. And chads said the central USA store said the part was "6 weeks out" and when I said about Samstag they said the get theirs direct from Germany. Which if they say there aren't any, and the US store are saying wait 6 weeks to get from Germany, that would say to me I would be waiting 6 weeks and then told there wasn't any!!
