Default Help finding battery cover clips

First, I apologize if this is in the wrong forum. I looked around, and, technically, its not an electrical issue, so I opted to post it here.
I know many, many people have had issues with their battery cover popping off, due to the cheap clips used to keep them on.
I bought an 07 sportster last year, and one of the clips is missing. I currently use zip ties to keep it in place (its missing the forward clip), but this is inefficient when I need to get to the fuses, or the battery.
I have searched to see if I could simply purchase these clips, but, either I suck at searching (possibility) or they simply dont sell these (also a possibility). I am turning to the forum, to see if anyone here has a link to the clips, so that I may order them. OR, worst case, the part number, so I can order them direct.
So, if anyone can assist, I would be extremely grateful! And, if you're local, I will owe you a beer!

Front clip 70416-04a
Rear clip 70417-04a
From the '06 parts manual
Numbers have probably changed so check with the local dealer and perhaps Ronnies HD and New Castle HD on line.

From the '12 Manual
70417-04C mounting kit
4991 Screw

But I think thats the rear clip parts only

I suggest the following

Go to Ronnies Harley Davidson's online fiche on their website (click here)
Look up your bike
Go to the FRAME ASSEMBLY W/ SWING ARM AND JIFFY STAND page
And you will see the part numbers Rocketman posted. However, I think they are now updated and the current part number ends with a "C" as they have been redesigned

I think the clips are fine, and have never had the cover come off when it shouldn't, but some people apparently do.

When I bought the bike used, it was missing the front one, was held in place with a zip tie. I ordered both, as they are the newer style, and it doesnt look like anyone has had issues with them.

Mine started and it was a pain to keep stopping. Got the new ones from HD and all is good.

I have a 2015 cover pops since i got it from the dealership... Supposed to have the new style clip? I tried to reroute the wiring behind the cover with no luck it was still popping out so i got pissed, drilled a hole in the upper part of the cover and put a zip tie
