Proliant 5000 Power Supply Maintenance Key

I am unable to locate a source for the Compaq Proliant 5000 “Power Supply Maintenance Key”, part number 148757-001. It is a small white plastic key about 1 inch long that defeats the cover interlock switch. I have attached an image of the part taken from the maintenance manual. Does anyone know of a place that sells this part? Alternatively, if someone has one they’re willing to part with it would be appreciated.

Hi,

this is a very very Old Server, and this Key was an Option Spare Part for Service Personal and not included.
This Server will become Over-Heated if he runs with open Side Panel.
It is not an Official Way, but for Maintenance in the past, I put a Key in the hole.
(Due to the weight of the keychain, it always held.)


======================
That was not planned in this way.

Thank you for your excellent practical suggestion. However, as a former Compaq ASE I acquired some unique service items and this key was part of my collection. It is now missing and I would like to replace it.

I would suggest to refer HPE partsurfer to track the active parts status ..

If it is valid in part surfer, usually it is orderable.

For part order please contact your sales representative .

  Indeed, I have contacted Hewlett Packard Enterprise Replacement Parts Business who then opened a case number for me. They informed me that 148757-001 is End of Life and provided a list of North American partners to source the part through.  None of the contacts were able to obtain the part. 

  As a service part from a very long time ago it is possible that a technician may have one lying forgotten in a desk drawer or on a shelf somewhere. Perhaps one will turn up in such an unlikely manner.
