Do you have valuable octal type tubes that work fine except the keyway has been broken off the base? Fix it with this simple and inexpensive product. Simply clean the remainder of the broken keyway from the base and slip one of these on. Will stay on by itself, or you can use a dab of silicon to attach if you wish.

These work great. I use a Dremel tool with a small cylindrical abrasive stone to to grind down remnants of the broken keyway. Judiciously apply some drops of superglue to the tube base, carefully align the keyway between pins 1 and 8, then press together.

great item for repairing broken keys on valuable tubes to make them 100% again. I glue these in place with JB Weld for a permanent heat proof bond. Price is a BARGAIN!

It does the job conveniently and is stronger than the original plastic that so often breaks. It seems a little expensive though.
