Default Steering wheel "key" - where can I find one?

I am looking for the half-moon shaped "key" that ties / interconnects the steering wheel to the steering shaft and can't find one anywhere! It basically looks like a nickel (.05 cents) cut in half, but a bit thicker. Does anyone know where one of these can be sourced!?

Thanks,
Mark.

try Mcmaster-Carr, they have a ton of stuff so it sometimes takes a minute to find what you are looking for. Try looking under "woodruff keys"

Yeah sure, but why buy at a hardware store for .99 cents when you can purchase the marine version, from a 'marine specialzed' dealer, for $59.99 ((just a joke folks lighten up ))

That is called a wooddruff key, They are at hardware stores. Make sure you measure how thick it needs to be. I hope this helps.
