Hi Guys, need help finding a Litespeed seatpost part

I have an older Litespeed Ti seatpost has two screw adjustment -- one for power and one for adjusting the saddle tilt. The power screw goes up through the top of the post and screws into a triangular aluminum clamp that forces the rails in place. I don't think this is a Litespeed specific design because I also have the same seatpost in aluminum.

I have stripped the threads on the triangular clamp.

Any idea where I can get a new one? I will call Litespeed Monday, but you guys are way smarter. Other solutions?

Use a long bolt that sticks all the way through the triangular bit, and add a nut at the end?

It would look ugly, I'm sure, but may work if you're in a pinch...

You could also install a helicoil in the stripped part. It would not be noticeable.
