hi
I need a 4mm e clip for the steam knob on my  Vetrano.
Any suggestions on where I can buy this?
I checked home depot and my local hardware store. No luck, as they only have imperial (not metric) size E clips. I tried 3/16 which looks very close but I could not get it on.
The metric one is 4mm.
thanks
Alan

Honestly i don't understand what are you looking for, my Vetrano steam arm has only orings and teflon washer, or maybe you are mentioning to the clip under the removable steam valve knob lid?

hi
I corrected my original. It's for the steam knob as you said, under the valve knob lid.

Hi Alan,

it's important even the thickness of the clip, if too thick you can't fit it in the shaft.
If you still to have the original you could try in some ( whatever) mechanic workshop.
Good luck.

the closest measure in imperial size should be 5/32, which is a bit smaller than 4mm
