Fuel Cap Tether

The tether broke to the fuel cap on our 2005 Cobalt. Is this a dealer only kind of thing? Autozone, Advance, etc only have the cap but no tether. Its not a big deal, but I like to be able to hang my cap on the fuel door. More importantly, my teenage son wont leave it sitting on the pump or anything.

I think it's dealer or AC/Delco dealer only. Tether is made to cap as one unit. Not really that expensive. I like the tether function too.

Good thing my tether is there because i forgot to put my gas cap on after fueling it today. I heard something flopping around in the back of my car and looked around and there it was, hanging there!
I'm surprised the engine wouldn't throw a code with the gas cap completely off
