Cable-operated drain parts?

Hello everyone, I could use some help locating parts for a cable operated roman tub drain.

The drains in our hotel are similar to this:

And I cannot find parts for any drain like this (other than the stopper and handle itself) anywhere. I had some guests twist the handle all the way around and snapped the little linkage rod inside that connects to the cable.

Does anyone have any ideas as to where I can find more replacement parts for drains of this type? I've searched extensively and would appreciate any leads. Thanks in advance!

Try your local plumbing supplier(s), where the trades people buy, and not the big box stores.

It's not a Kohler, it just looks similar to that, so I don't know if they'd be able to help me out with any parts, and I can't find the make/model of it without tearing the the tub apart (our company no longer deals with the installers and they left no documentation), and the unit is currently occupied. Was just wondering if there was a "one-stop-shop" for this sort of thing.

The most local plumbing supply shop is 45 minutes away, so that isn't as easy as it sounds either, especially when I'm not sure what I'm looking to get parts for yet, but I'll call 'em.
