Is there a replacement mount for scissor keys

The metal hooks holding the scissor keys are broken (the up and down arrow) is there a replacement?

When you say "broken" do you mean completely snapped off, or bent out of place?

@jmehnert it's completely snapped off and I don't have the piece

So the problem is that those metal hooks are actually apart of a bigger metal structure that attaches to the body of the device. Their's a video that shows what I'm referring to here, at around the 12 - 13 min mark. If you want to find a replacement keyboard, I'd start looking at eBay or salvage one from a junked MacBook.
