[sdiy] where to get 3M Scotchflex sockets and strips?

I checked there and Digikey and Mouser, etc.
Not way off at all, its a good suggestion. Its just these
are plastic parts and get brittle with time. I was hoping for
a fresh supply of newly made ones.
From the lack of interest I guess I was happily using my stock
of them while the world went on to other things.
Serious question though: How are people prototyping digital
circuits? My prototypes usually go into service and I never
bother making anything else; this means the method I use
has to be fast and solid.
Is there some other system that replaced the 3M one?
Thanks for any tips.
