I need a 4mm Bowden tube push clip, but I'd rather print it...?

Just got my printer a week ago. Calibrated and tinkered for three days to get it to print even layers.. Got my first good print then I switched colors and clogged the shit out of my hot end. It was absolutely horrid. I couldn't get filament through at all pushing hard with pliers.... I didn't know you could unscrew the finned section from the square section on the bottom and spent 2 days trying to unclog it by poking a red hot Allen wrench through the hole. Finally I resorted to torching my hot end hot smiley lol. It did the trick, but needless to say the Bowden tube clip melted along with my clog and fused together. I then pulled out the clog and out came the clip.

I've seen some online but they all seem to come from China and I know they'd take forever to ship... is there NOT A STL FILE FOR THIS SIMPLE PART? I know it's small but definitely printable. I'm still learning to use SketchUp. I don't like the user interface and plan to purchase Simplify3D. Until then, could someone either point me to the file or design one for me? That'd be great. 4mm Bowden tube width. moody smiley

EDIT: Wellllllll, I just noticed the clip has tiny metal teeth that grip the inside of the hot end.... RIP my first post... spent alot of time taking pics sad smiley smileys with beersmoking smiley
