Default Nonsteerable music wire tail wheel mount?

I have a Morris Hobbies Profile I fly a lot. For a tail wheel it has a long piece of music wire with a wheel on it. The music wire flexes and works great. I just finished a Sabre 47 Profile and would like to put the same type of tail wheel on it. Anyone know where a guy could find one of these. I could bend the music wire and I have a wheel. What I need is the two plastic mounts that hold it to the fuse. You slot the fuse and the wire slides through the plastic pieces and then they slide into slots in the fuselage and are glued. Anyone know what I'm talking about? Any help would be appreciated.

Sounds like the piece(s) you are looking for are similar to Great Planes part GPMQ1900. You may be able to use as is or just steal the bracket.

Yes that looks like it. But I need 2 of the mounting tabs and my wire is a lot longer. That way it flexes so the plane can turn easily. Thanks

steerable wire drags work just fine and the only reason for them to be steerable is that the tail comes around easier on a grass runway when the drag steers with the rudder. on pavement it makes no difference.
