When Mike told me this morning that some (unnamed) person just bought all of his grate clips I knew I had to get creative. There is probably a better way but this is what worked for me since I'm not much on metal fabrication. 
I started with a picture hanger strap, or D-strap, I call them. I found the material to be soft enough to work with but rigid enough to retain its shape. When the D-ring is removed the hairpin end of the strap is already shaped for the stove grate. The only work needed is to cut it to size and bend a little flange before inserting it into the slots in the stove to prevent its escape. It was a little bit too wide but the bench grinder remedied that.
Oh, and that gnarly ridge on the stove was from the previous owner. I didn't do it! I hope this helps someone. 
I can't seem to place the photos in order but you get it.  Click image for larger version - Name: MVIMG_20190709_124054_compress21.jpg, Views: 97, Size: 249.74 KB Click image for larger version - Name: MVIMG_20190709_124453_compress60.jpg, Views: 100, Size: 214.38 KB

Those would work nicely for clips to hold windscreens for a 500/500A, too! Wish I'da' thought of that!
It's priceless until someone puts a price on it.
