Default Bow railing hardware

I recently added a trolling motor to the bow of my walkaround. I had to cut my bow rail and want to add a hinged piece that I can swing out of the way for the trolling motor shaft to pass through and then close it back down. I found this picture which is exactly what I want to do but I cannot find this piece I circled. I attached a few pictures for reference. My boat is the one with the big gap on the railing.
I have 7/8" thick stainless railing.
Anyone have any idea where I can find this thing?
Thank you in advance!

Check the hardware section on sailrite. Those are standard parts with a clip pin through the middle.

I've been unable to find that one on the left that has the 2 "knuckles" on it. The one on the right I can find everywhere but even on the sailrite page I could not locate the kind with the double on it.

I ordered the one from unicorn stainless. They have both a 1in and 7/8in option. I just ordered it yesterday so I can't speak for how it looks in person yet.
