bogen tripod lock lever better replacement?

I have a bogen 3221 tripod and one of the lock lever broke.

The replacement part looks like this:

I don't know what material this lever is made of. Looks like some sort of inferior metal that can snap under force.

Is there a stronger replacement/substitute for this part that is made of real metal and I can buy from a hardware store? It does not need to look pretty.
