Where can I buy a rubber Tie/Pull like this one on this Suitcase

Are they easily available somewhere, or a unique item? The other zipper is the same, missing a pull, so either another pull like this or a suggestion, on how to repair both using some other hardware. Thanks.

Yes I do have the small cable ties, from Harbor Freight.., good idea....

Also, what would be a good lubricant on the handle that rises and allows one to roll the suitcase. It goes up and down, but it good move a little easier. Not sure what lubricant would be worse than not doing anything. I think it may have a very small bend in it....

WD40, Silicone....?

Not exactly the same, but it will be more durable.

A large paper clip? Heavy flashing line? Leader for fishing hook? Leather shoe laces cut to size? A bit of imagination?

I'd rather use a piece of twine/cordage/rope/shoelaces than an inelegant tie-wrap

This is sort of obvious but that is a short line tied in a loop? So anything you have can be tied and then pulled through.

Yeah, some people are real good at tying all sorts of fancy, nice looking knots and make some interesting ones.

I've even used the ones that sometimes come with USB flash drives.

Anything to make someof the teeny tiny zipper pulls easy to find/grab/pull.

I use Tri-Flow a bike chain lubricant instead of wd40 and the like.

Yes, Tri-Flow, then wipe it down. Or any decent dry film lubricant. Tri Flow dry is my go to, it has a gray label, not black. Liquid Wrench with a gray can, their dry lubricant, is AWESOME on firearms too, especially rimfires.
