Spent enormous time looking for these parts, and can not even find how they are called. Tried mouser, digikey, farnell, arrow. The best I found is "crystal insulator (thermal)" which is not what I am looking for.

By the way, last time I obtained them by desoldering old SMD quartz crystal assemblies.

Edit: yes, I want my THT crystal mounted to look this way, being held by this assembly

Why obsolete?

  • \$\begingroup\$ A description what they are supposed to do would help. Is this to insulate a HC49 -ish crystal from the PCB? \$\endgroup\$ – Oldfart Nov 19 '19 at 14:07
  • \$\begingroup\$ If BIVAR doesn't make it , it's obsolete. Even wood will do. It's Just a strain relief from damage to internal gold wirebond. \$\endgroup\$ – Tony Stewart Sunnyskyguy EE75 Nov 19 '19 at 14:13

It seems they changed the design so it looks different, but everyone still stocks the BIVAR parts.

  • \$\begingroup\$ These are ugly ersatz :( I have several of these, but decided to disassemble SMD crystals because their plastic basements are far more elegant and easier to use. \$\endgroup\$ – Anonymous Nov 19 '19 at 14:34
