I didn't bother looking elsewhere.... just ordered from Majestic Honda.
The are (only) about fifty some dollars.

Sure, you might find one that "works" from another make/model,
but you'll be spending time.

By now, however, you've probably addressed the situation in your
own way.

You might try auto parts stores. I think they are generally pretty standard across brands, its just a matter of finding the right length. I replaced some on my dad's Ford Explorer and we just had to measure the lengths. It wasn't too hard to install, especially after I started using a broom handle to hold up the trunk door. :)
