Default Sun visor grommets

My car is missing the grommets pictured below, are there any known fixes for this?

Realistically see if our sponsors can supply replacement visors which are complete.
Aren't they part of the electrical circuit for the mirror lamps in the visor?

Too small to print on a filament machine I think but a resin printer could do it

One of mine has gone too. Ive replaced with a small length of clear plastic tubing, split lengthways and press fitted. Its not the neatest or OEM so if there is a source, then i would be in the queue too.

Bit of appropriately coloured insulating tape carefully wrapped round did mine. Maybe easier as mine is black

Thatís my current solution, too. But Iím not aware that they have anything to do with the electrics in the visor.

That was me jumping to conclusions seeing the metal sprung clip, thinking it was an electrical contact, and not looking closely enough.

There's obviously some clever mechanism inside the pivot end of the visor that cuts off the light when it's folded up with the vanity mirror cover open.
