    If it breaks so easysily a substitute should not be solution, rather a repair with a self-constructed tab.

    It depends which meter you have, but Gossen seem to be happy servicing and calibrating relatively ancient products (my Lunasix 3, a couple of years ago) so they may have a simple method of supplying user-changeable parts too. A quick e-mail would get the answer.

    Gossen has a form to order small parts. But the same time they state not to repair older meters (all analogue ones) due to lack of parts.
