The finished product.

I found some 0.020 stainless :-)

The reinforcement consists of three pieces of Katie's header socket, pins removed, cemented to one another with cyanoacrylate glue. The two pieces closest to the ribbon cable connector are 5 holes wide, and the one that fits into the calculator is 3 holes wide. I did not perceive a need to fill the space around the pins with epoxy; they appear to be secure enough.

The first photo shows how the sides were tapered by filing, in order to more easily fit the clip ends into the calculator.

I already fabricated a second, better looking (and better fitting) clip since the one in these photos was sized with some trial and error.

Thanks to Dave Frederickson for the ribbon cable connector idea.
