Just as we got home from Tahoe and I was lifting the suitcase out of the back of the car, the cleat that holds one end of the handle on the top of the suitcase broke.

I could find no sign of official parts for this old Samsonite suitcase, but there are a variety of similar looking generic parts on Amazon and eBay. Many of them looked similar, but had the wrong spacing on the screw holes. Some of them lacked clear information on the precise measurements. I bought one that, frankly, looked like it probably was slightly off in terms of size, but which cost less than $10. And the spacing indeed was a millimeter or two off. Close enough, though, or so it seems.
