Default Piston pin clips. Where to buy cheap?

Does anybody know where to buy piston pin clips for floating pin rods that are reasonably priced? Summit wants 2-3 each for the clips.

Anyone know the GM part number?

Any aftermarket compatible clips?

I have LS6 rods and Mahle LS1 forged replacement pistons. The pistons use the same style clip as GM's.

2 ideas:
1. Call/visit the local Chevy dlr. [Al least get a pt #.]
2. Call Mahle. They may have a lock they prefer over the stocker.
My concern would be using some cheap lock, could result in a wrist pin taking out the cyl wall. [BTDT]

Summit lists Keith Black Spirolocks at a buck each.

They're a pain to install-which is a good thing.
