Where to get a clip for on-bike tire pump?

I have a Topeak road morph pump. It came with a clip-on holder for the top tube. That clip has broken off and now I have to carry the pump in one of panniers, which I don't want to do.

It doesn't appear that Topeak sells the clip separately and there is no email address listed on the Topeak website so I can't directly ask them about it.

I've thought about using velcro to stick it on my frame somewhere but I'm concerned it will fall off and I won't notice it.

I'd appreciate any suggestions you might have for sticking the pump on my bike somewhere that is secure and out of the way.

Thanks,

Ray

I emailed them asking if I could purchase one and they sent me one free. They are very helpful, but it took a couple tries to get the right one.

Todson does the support for Topeak. Or you can click on Service and Tech > FAQ at the Topeak site.

Twofish lockblock would work.

You could cut a bit of styrofoam to shape (or scrap hard rubber) and a bit of velcro.

Don't forget to secure the tubing as well with a bit of velcro or an inner-tube rubber band.

As for Topeak, yeah, check out their support site. Topeak is a great company. I also asked about buying the bracket and they sent me one for free.

This one is $3.95 from https://www.biketiresdirect.com/pvtps...p_strap/pp.htm Seems simple enough and reasonable. Shipping will cost you more than the mount though. Only crappy part is shipping is $9 ish dollars. They do offer free shipping but you have to spend $100 to get it.
