Not equipt but repair anyway  I have serveral metal tv trays with broken plastic things. They are the ones that snap onto the tubular frame/legs. What are they called and where can I get them? Thanks for any reply    Herb

Try this Website, I think they may have what you want. You will probably have to contact them because their site doesn't have a search button. If they don't have them then they should be able to put you onto someone that does.
www.wclco.com/

OOPS UPDATE: I just noticed that they have a minimum $250 order.  Think I may google some more now.

Good LUck,
meller

If you can't find these, I'll bet that with a little creativity, pvc pipe, hacksaw, file and pop rivet gun, you could make your own real easy.  What I'm thinking of is one rivet in the center of the part that touches the tray and then the bottom part cut and filed to let the tubing legs just barely slip in.  Worth a try, eh?

Another possibility I thought of that ?Might? work was the old style cabinet door latches that had an open spring type latch that grabbed ahold of the fixed part of the latch that was screwed into the door. If you could find and modify something like that it would probably work also. Don't know if the pvc would have enuff give to act as a gripper or not? Maybe the gray type pvc would have more flexibility. Just tossing things around ??????

Amigo, there is and always will be a TV tray by my recliner so NO they haven't gone out of style. Sherry wouldn't let me mount a beer holder in the recliner arm so I had not choice.

One more possibility and suggestion. Click on this link

https://www.google.com/search?q=spring+clips&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=2GLWU8eYBITR8AH-uIB4&sqi=2&ved=0CDkQsAQ&biw=1000&bih=598&dpr=0.8#facrc=_&imgdii=_&imgrc=aUtorhBLhdmVdM%253A%3B04gHTW1_KTeRjM%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fmedia.marine-products.com%252Fmedia%252Fcatalog%252Fproduct%252Fcache%252F1%252Fsmall_image%252F295x295%252F9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95%252F7%252F2%252F72011.jpg%3Bhttp%253A%252F%252Fwww.marine-products.com%252Fparts%252Fboat-hardware%252Fboat-hardware-fasteners%252Fboat-hook-holders-utility-clips.html%3B295%3B295

and then scroll down thru the various images. When you see something that you like then click on the image

and it should enlarge with more images to the right and a website and information above those images. 

Click on that link and see if they have what you need.  You may have to check a few of them out before

you find one that fits your needs.

Good Info Amigo,, that boat latch thingy looks like it could possibly work if it isn't to large, they sell those as broom hangers etc in any hardware store

Isn't Sherry a beer drinker?  (apparently not) but you could put a privacy screen between you're chair and hers ,then she would never know you had a cup holder on you're recliner until you came to bed, or tried to get in bed,, but maybe pouring the beer in a coffee cup for a disguise would work better, does beer taste better out of a can or bottle?winkwinkbiggrin

YOU Must be bored today, I am, I gotta shoot some primer on that damned 65 mousetang, and its gonna be hot today, at least in the 80's wink

Amigo, I am a Redneck Beer connoisseur. The colder the better BUT there is what we call Rodeo Cold down here and that is the beer that was left in the cooler in the back of the PU from the night before and all the ice has melted a long time ago. When it comes to brands there are two kinds, the kind YOU buy and the kind SOMEONE ELSE buys. It's all GOOD IMHO !  Sorry about the Hi-Jack

Cheers,
Em
