Question Leather tape measure clip

I wear a nylon tape measure clip and go through about 4 a year as the nylon frays after time. I tried searching the internet to see who sells leather clip. I couldn't find a single match. Anyone recommend a website or store that may sell them. I'd appreciate it.

I have one made by Klein that is years old. Check their website or maybe http://www.acetoolonline.com/Brands-s/15.htm. They shouldn't be hard to find. Here you go http://www.mytoolstore.com/klein/5197.html

Klein 5707:

Does the 5197 work with a fat max? also does it allow for the tape to come out of it easily? or does it lift up with the clip?

The one I used worked with any tape I put on it. The tape went on and came off easily, but stayed on when I needed it to.

I use that 5707 and it's great. Tape stays put and is easy to get out. I use a FatMax with it. I've had it for about 6 months and ZERO fray.
