FDS may have it.
They are called T-Lockers
As usual Boeing has a knack for ugly and antiquated hardware.
The solution below has more appeal IMHO

Yes, and so much better than the ugly T-scrap
It is your airplane and there is no enticement to use outdated parts to avoid cost of new certification... :P

I've already modelled these for my own TQ, see attached. Fairly simple design and easy to print, just two parts and a 2mm steel rod for the hinge pin.
I run a 2mm drill through one side and tap the rod into the other side. You need to make sure the hole in the moving part is clear.

I imagine the real ones have a spring to hold the flap in position, it could be done but I didn't bother. If you don't have a printer there are a number of companies on Thingyverse who will print it for very little money... in the UK about £3 each... or $4.00 (STL file Attached)

Alternately you could get a couple of these flick type switches on ebay, which I fitted to my original TQ,
eBay auction: #361793111625 They're not exactly the same as the originals, it depends how fussy you are.

Hope that helps.
Joe.

There you go Mike, Joe comes to the rescue... :D Way to go Joe!

If you can, find someone local to print them or do as Joe suggests, very inexpensive that way.  :idiot:
