[Histonet] Pinning specimens

When we receive large specimens such as colons, our pathologist opens
them to let them fix overnight.  We used to have large specimen
containers that had a piece of rubber glued to the bottom of the
container so we could pin the specimens to hold them open for better
fixation.  Little by little our supply of containers with rubber have
decreased and we are unable to find a replacement.  Does anyone know of
a vendor who sells these or can you share what you do to hold open
specimens?  Thanks in advance, Karen :-)
