If you're searching the web, try looking for mylar hinges rather than plasic hinges. I think mylar is closer to what you are looking for.

Thanks a lot for this suggestion. By searching for "mylar" hinges, somehow it eventually led me to finding these;
It actually turned out to be "nylon" hinges rather than "plastic" or "mylar". These are the best ones I've ever found online, and I'm still finding more. They still aren't the same as the ones on the Tony Clark harness, but they may very well be close enough, and may actually be easier to load.

Nylon hinges are are also used to build model airplanes. Check your hobby shop.

I do not know the size of these hinges but McMaster Carr has some. Look up surface mount hinges-plastic or polycarbonate with removable pins.

Half the battle of doing a search is knowing what to search for name wise.

You can also use metallic hinges, paint them black or any other desired color. They can be found in Home Depot and this kind of stores in USA in the furniture accessories section.

The problem with the metal hinges is their weight. Even though they are small, nylon/mylar ones are almost weightless.
