Arrow 1995 F150 Tailgate Issue

OK guys, 95 F150, when I pull the tailgate lever, only one side of the gate unlatches. Thankfully I relocated the tailgate handle to the inside of my truck bed and with the kit came a plate with 4 screws that held the new handle on. Really easy to remove!

Anyway, took the plate with the handle off and seen that there are two threaded rods that go horizontally across the tailgate and connect on each side of the handle. One rod goes to one latch and the other rod goes to the opposite latch. When both rods are pulled to the center of the tailgate, the tailgate opens as it should.

After inspecting the handle, I noticed there was a clip missing that held the rod onto the handle. Each side of the handle has this clip. Does anyone know he name of this clip? Does anyone have a dealer part number? Something?!

To anyone with this issue, I will keep this thread updated and eventually fix the issue, just read through it! Good luck!
