You gotta "Bust" it off Ken , & then get a "jubilee clip" the same size & re-fit the TB usin that..........

That "old" clip is reusable but you'll need a special tool to fit it


& before you say .................YES I KNOW YOU'VE GOT A REEL SPECIAL TOOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

but we won't go into that right now !!!!!

Keith has got it in one. If you want something that looks a lot better though then the cheap nasty Jubilee clip, you could always opt for some Mikalor clamps. Nice stainless steel clamps with a proper hex head to get a socket/spanner on, and look greeat into the bargain. Just type Mikalor into google.
