whip antenna hold downs

My 1963 has a whip antenna. Originally, it had a holder to pull the tip of the antenna down and hook into. there was also a mid antenna rubber piece to keep the antenna from rubbing the aluminum.

Can someone describe the end hold down piece for me (a picture or drawing would be better). I can't remember how it was made, and I need to replace mine.

Thanks Mark & Gary.

Neither of these look quite like I remember, but both are good functional designs. I appreciate you both for taking the time to post these.

Any other designs???

Here is the best photo I have showing our Antenna hold downs, you can zoom in on the picure to gain a better view. I believe they are original. They are actually a square channel and hold the antenna very well. I can get close ups the next time I am at the storage yard if you need them.

Good Luck
