Shelf clips? Can't find anywhere!


I have a built-in bookcase in my house and am looking for clips that are the same, or similar, to these:





I've been to a number of hardware stores, Home Depot, etc., and they usually take one look and laugh at me. Has anyone seen these or know where I might get more clips? Am I better off replacing the whole system with something more modern?

Any help is much, much appreciated! Thank you.

The ones I've seen only have one tab top and bottom not two.
Where did you look in HD? They have the clips back in the storage are, like where the wire shelving is.
May just have to change out the tracks. White tracks and clips would look better anyway.

Can you find a name or any markings on the tracks. If you have a name or number you can search on Google and can probably find a vendor carries them.

Check with a commercial refrigeration contractor (or supplier).

Are these called clamps? You will find them in hardware stores. Show them one sample.

Nope, they are called a "Shelf support". A hardware store employee is just going to look at you as if you grew a third eye, while standing in front of them. The ones that the hardware stores would have, would be for the shelf brackets that they stock.

As for the OP, that is a hard style to find, so you may end up having to replace the bracket with one that allows you to use a different style of shelf support. You could ask also over in http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/ since most of those guys/gals do cabinet building, and other types of fine wood work, and may have a site that they know of, vs. trying to search through amazon or ebay for those supports.
