Looks like he tore out the end hook on that tape as well, there is a gap 
in the photo of the disassembled cartridge, but there is clearly a loop 
in the photo above as he holds the door open.

I'd think the tolerances on the shape and strength of that would be 
pretty tight, so fabbing one up may be tricky.  Harvesting one and 
splicing with some luck may be a better way to go if possible.
