Does anyone know where I can source this part to fit through the axle and nut of the Gen 4 rear axle?
The problem with these clips is they are easy to catch on things and spring open. I lost one of those clips off a bike and had no idea how long I went without it. The R clip @obijack mentioned is a better solution for an axle lock. Mostly what I use.

I use rear axle sliders. Woodcraft (a highly respected and reputable company) sends a 24mm split lock washer with their kit (i used the evotech kit which did not include a split lock washer). The washer allows you to get rid of the cotter pin all together, because it keeps tension on the nut. I have been doing a lot of very hard riding since i changed from he cotter pin to the split lock washer. I have checked the torque of my axle nut many times. The nut's torque has not changed, at all. I bought my split lock washer from Ace.
