    Does anyone happen to have an old, dead Electro 35 GSN that has a battery cover in good condition or a link to where I can purchase one (other than eBay)? I think mine may be shot, as some of the leads look broken and a known-good battery doesn't seem to be working.

    Neither of my battery covers are in good shape or work anymore. My solution is to put a quarter (Canadian 25 cent coin) on top of the battery, slid into the slit which surrounds the battery container, and then cinch the battery cover down over the whole lot. This works quite reliably.

    Thanks for the tip, I'll try that out.
