Momma called it a potholder.
1967 was a high point in tek's vertical production history :)

The little plastic clips that hold the 6mm diameter trimpots?

Don't know what they are called but they look like a 'cable clip' for routing cables.

Hello--
They're likely part of a group of parts called "Transipads" (tm)

Well, the original question at eevblog says it's form a 1S2, so look at the Mechanical Parts List and Figures in the manual.
I think these will be 352-0100-00 "Holder, variable resistor", as in Fig 3-39.

I found that knowing the part number 352-0100-00 and "holder" didn't help when searching for a replacement. In some instruments the trimpots are mounted on a "stand-off" but that search term also gave no useful hits.

Tek part number 352-0100-00 is described on page 9-76 of this document:

Thanks, guess I should look at the mechanical diagrams more closely.
Can't find this part anywhere, it's not preventing the pot from working, it's just a little annoying.
