halyard/mainsheet cam lock broke

ARRRG ! I have a 32' Columbia, which has double cam type.locks on port and.stbd sides . These are the type that the line halyard, mainshet...etc is lead.through the locking mechanism and can travel freely untill the little lever/clamp is pushed down) thereby holding the tension.
Yesterday, my son (with all his best intentions) failed to notice the internal (grabby) part was already too far down (tight against the line with lever up)..... and he attempted to force the lever down to lock in the mainsheet. this resulted in the top piece (the lever/clip itself) breaking off.
Does any one know where to get teplacement parts for this....or do I have to buy the entire double unit ?.
I have only found 1 place online thst sells them. "Spin Lock". And they are very poud of their products. Surely someone elsr offers these.
Tried West Marine too.......no luck..... any guidance is greatly appreciated.

Re: halyard/mainsheet cam lock broke

Do you mean a line clutch, like this sort of thing?

Re: halyard/mainsheet cam lock broke

Spinlock SUA/2 Halyard stop, if this is the one they are the only one that makes them. not the best either you might be better off changing to a standard type cam cleat. like Harken or Ronstan. If it is a halyard stopper and you are using it for the mainsheet. well you should not. that is not the correct piece of hardware as they are not easy to release under load. main sheet should have a cam cleat that can be released easier under load. pictures would help us help you
