Manufacturers seldom use an off the shelf chainplate, most are custom for each model. You might be able to find one similar but probably not exactly what you want. The hole has to be the correct size for the toggle or turnbuckle your rig uses. A hole too large is a problem. What boat do you have? Maybe someone here could help more if we knew.
