Sony HVL LBP LED light - broken shoe mount !

I've broken the shoe mount from my Sony HVL LBP LED light, making it useless as a video light.

I've noticed the mount part is attached with 4 mini screws so it can definitely be replaced.

Is there any place online that sells this?

Alternatively, can you fix something like this? I have a few Sony HVL-20 camera lights that have also been rendered useless by broken mounts. I live in London, UK

Thanks for your help

Yeah I broke mine also, you can order that part from Sony Service but it is expensive so I didn't ordered it, but I sent mine in back the service center and they fix it for free and very fast too.

The part that I just posted is called 'HOLDER (S) ASSY, SHOE' as per Sony naming convention. I am pretty sure this is the part you are looking for

I just broke mine too. Sony overnighted the new part, which is the entire assembly from the angle bolt down. The new shoe is reinforced with additional support. They obviously have had problems with this. Sony charged me $96, but is refunding that when they receive the bad part back. You have to call the parts center in Kansas City and they will take care of you.
