Need replacement battery holder for Dinotte

To make a long story short, the battery holder for my Dinotte (4 AA's) went bouncing down the road at high speed. It broke. I have some cheapo holders from an electronics kit but they don't work worth a darn; bad connections, intermittent, etc.
Who sells a quality replacement? Radio Shack, maybe?
Are there any other battery pack configurations that would work?
Thanks in advance.

DiNotte's online store has two of the holders for $3.

Radio Shack item 270-383 $1.79 is similar to the holder Dinotte sells. Probably came off the same Chinese lowest-cost supplier factory line.
