What part is the sockal clip ... is that the locking mechanism for the folding part? I realise you can't load up a photo as a newby..you need 9 posts before they allow that.

There are very few parts available. Maybe you can find a local fabricator to make one for you.

Thanks for the quick reply.
Yes, its the black block that should sit in front of the rear axle and hold onto the front mudguard arm when all folded up. Turns out it is very important as it stops the bike unfolding when picked up
Will have to look for alternative systems
thanks again

This is my sockal clip - might help if you need to show it to someone else.

I did see ORI used the same Sockal Clip so maybe there is an Ori dealer with some spare parts somwhere in the Western World. Ori now seems to be under Chinese ownership so good luck trying to get something from them directly!

If you're in the UK, you could try reaching for their only retailer in Europe:
