Hi,

I recently ordered 6 x
 
Part No: 48729  Name: Bar   1L with Clip Mechanical Claw (Undetermined Type)
* 
48729 Bar 1L with Clip Mechanical Claw (Undetermined Type)
Parts: Bar {Dark Bluish Gray}

But I believe I received 6 x
 
Part No: 48729b  Name: Bar   1L with Clip Mechanical Claw - Cut Edges and Hole on Side
* 
48729b Bar 1L with Clip Mechanical Claw - Cut Edges and Hole on Side
Parts: Bar {Dark Bluish Gray}

However I've never seen an original 48729 part before and I couldn't
find a side-by-side comparison picture so I'd like to be sure before asking
for a reship/refund.

Please find attached the picture of the parts I received, half of them are flipped
but they all look the same on both sides. They were listed as New which tells
me there's a good chance they are 48729b but I'd prefer having a second
opinion.

Thanks in advance!

48729b has a hole on one side, 48729 does not. So you received 48729b.

Thank you for your answer, the confusing part for me is that the hole is only
on one side, so there's no way for me to know if 48729 really doesn't
have any hole since pictures always show a single side.

But I could take pictures of 48729b without any hole either!

48729 on the left, 48729b on the right. The one without the hole is a different
shape and wider so the hole isn't the only difference.

I don't need the hole to tell that they are all 48729b. The shape of the
clip shows you all that you need. Also, these are very modern 48729b's because
they have a flat end on the bar side. The older 48729b's and 48729 have more
rounded ends on the bar side.

It is very early in the morning here (so dark), and my photography skills are
poor, but I hope the quick and dirty image I have attached sates your curiosity.

Thanks, it does, I suggest you submit this picture to the catalog to help part
discrimination!

48729b has a hole on one side, 48729 does not. So you received 48729b.

The main difference is not (only) the hole, but the shape of the claws. You did
indeed receive the b version with cut edges.

Not all sellers separate parts with variations like these, might they have added
a note to their terms ?

I do but when I'm buying I like to check that the seller has at least two
variations listed, if they exist, so that I'm sure they separate them, just
a thought.

In this case, no note on the listing and no variation listed either.

In fact there is no catalog entry for the variant without hole. There is only
an entry which does not say anything about the hole and an entry which says "with
hole".

Thanks, I was able to confirm the variant which name doesn't say anything
doesn't have any hole either.
