Need help locating hyfield lever sources

Larry and I are completely revising the Capable Cruiserand updating not only the contents but the sources for specialized gear. We would like any leads on sources for staysail stay release levers, J-hook type release levers or hyfield levers. At present the only source we have found is johnson marine who make a stainless steel turnbuckle release system for staysails.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
