GU Casement Operator Retaining Clip

A quick learner from Wappingers Falls, NY says:
The attached picture shows the original, which was hurt while I was trying to bend it back into shape. Next to it is a replacement ( close ) from a local hardware store that needs to be modified in order to use.
My operator says "GU" on it, and the specs match up with your 39-415.
Are any replacement clips available for this?
If so, can they be installed around the rivet, or are they installed with the rivet?

Dave from SWISCO responded:
I'm afraid the detach clip for these operators are not available separately. They are riveted at the factory and cannot be replaced.
A quick learner says:
Thanks Dave.
The new operator is around $44. Since I already killed two of the replacement clips trying to modify them...the $44 is looking like a sound investment in time....
You'll see me again soon....I have some broken tilt latches to run down....
