Trailer tow TRUCK harness connector

I've got all the wiring harnesses necessary for 7 way plug and play truck side stuff.
But my OEM harness connector on the truck side partially broke yesterday. The one on the right side. The little part at the top that helps hold the connectors together broke, so they could slide apart if they wanted.



Where do I find it?

Anyone?
I'm driving myself crazy looking for this.
I found the WHOLE harness from Ford for upwards of 200

Can you just electrical tape them?

I could tape them, but I have two harnesses that plug into the truck one; one for the bumper plug and one for the bed. I been meaning to buy the splitter that allows both to be plugged in at once.
Ian, I could, but I like things to be unpluggable. But I also like things to be nicely spliced, and that'd be a lot of wiring. 21 wires.

The tab on one of the plugs broke on my truck too. Instead of hassling with buying another one, I just chained a couple small zip-ties together and ran it through the wires on each plug, holding it together. Easy enough to snip off if I need to unplug it later.

I was at the jy last week looking for a whole harness and there were plenty of these connectors. Do you want the truck or harness side? It cost me 20 bucks for the harness, 7pin connector, and the bracket.

Yea that's what I would do except I have two different connectors under there that I unplug and plug in. One bumper, one bed connector.

I'll get a picture of it later, cause all I want is just the truck side connector.
Wish I knew of junkyards around here.

I wish I had that part to give ya but I only replaced the harness side. My truck side was fine.

So, you live in Texas and you don't have a junk yard/ scrap yard around you??
They are there somewhere cause us up here in the salt belt always buy parts from Texas!!!
