Need Crossbar Mounting Clamps 2012 Forester - discontinued!

I recently purchased/installed the Aero Crossbars for our 2012 Forester and the Subaru Cargo Basket but it doesn't come with the mounting clamps. I check with the local dealer and the part they say I need is e361sxa100 but it has been discontinued and I can't find it anywhere online. Does anyone know of a replacement part that can be used?

A quick check on my part leads me to believe that this part was supplied by Yakima. However, the current cargo basket sold by Subaru for your Forester is a Thule product it appears. If they are Thule products you have, then the appropriate Thule "U" claps for their Aero Bar may work.

Thanks for the help. The parts shop says this basket is made by Yakima but I have yet to find a mounting clamp that will work. Pretty frustrated that Subaru would sell (and still sell) this Cargo Basket that says it fits on a 2012 Forester but not make the key part (clamp) needed to attached the basket to my crossbars. Both the Cargo Basket AND Cross Bars are on Subaru's website.

I ran into this with our 2019 Outback. They discontinued the clamps I needed E361SAJ801. Found some on eBay.
Where are you located? I have several different ones sitting in a box. Might be helpful to fill in your user stuff in your control panel.
Good luck,
Richard

Look at the images on this page which show the current basket used by Subaru/Yakima under the current Subaru Part number:

Look under spare parts here, along with the image to find your clamps:
