What is this and where to find it

Hello everyone. I recently scored a vintage Americana Nimrod from an estate sale. I am planning on fixing it up. It really is in excellent shape. Anyway, there is a slide/wedge device that help lock the poles when extending the canvas over the bed. I included a picture. Anyone know what it is called and where I might find two. Each bed has two. On one bed, they are in good shape, see the pic. The other two are basically all cracked and don't hold the extended pole. Thanks in advance for the help.

Can't help you on parts, but I did find this Nimrod history:

Pop-up Camper History

You might check sites that carry regular tent poles.

I've seen them referred to as tent pole cam locks.

I haven't seen that particular design on anything for a few years.
Most are going to a lever lock or push button.
Here are a few examples.
You can get some leads from this Google search.

Another thought...
You could always remove the broken one(s), split the outer pole with a hacksaw (down about an inch) and put a S/steel hose clamp on it. Tighten to hold.

Wouldn't be quite as convenient but would get the job done.

Can you use the back half of this type of pipe clamp? They are Jorgenson and I use them all the time. Should last a lifetime.
