Timbuk2 Calamity

One of the fasteners on my 5-year-old Timbuk2 messenger bag has been obliterated. In the image below, imagine that both of the outer prongs have been snapped off, preventing the mechanism from closing:

I'm pretty depressed about this. I've had this bag for a really long time and am reluctant to break in a new one. I'm going to use the power of Twitter to see if anyone has a simple solution.

I love the modern world. It turns out that Timbuk2 is on Twitter (@timbuk2) and they directed me to a $2 replacement fastener available on their website. Bless them!
