Looking for set of trippers for paragon 4014-20 pool timer

Copy following link to identify timer:

Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper
Paragon is no longer making timers except for defrost times.
There is a new line of timers coming from China that looks identical to Paragon 4000, and uses same tripper. As a result this timer design and trippers could be around for years to come.

Replacement timer is Intermatic T104R 240Volt indoor outdoor enclosure, with replacement parts widely available

Moved time pointer on pool timer to set time than read instructions moved pointer back to original spot now timer does not click on or off when it passes pins

Timer brand and model number are not shown.
Brand and model appear on inside of timer door.

Moving stationary pointer will not affect on-off operation of timer. The pointer is just reference for setting current time.
Worn trippers can cause problem.
Trippers are softer metal and designed to wear down so timer mechanism lasts for decades.

Intermatic pool timers use set of 156T1978A trippers.
Tork timers use P47 tripper on 24-hour clock dial,Photo.Cells...Time.Controls,Replacement.Trippers
Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper. Paragon timers are discontinued and trippers hard to find.

Need trippers for older unknown model number amf paragon pool timer. timer is 15 - 20 years old

Paragon no longer makes timers or parts, except defrost timers.
Typically, defrost timers are not used for pools.
Open following link to possibly identify timer and tripper part number.

If you want a new timer for pools, Intermatic makes the T101 120Volt and T104 240Volt:

If you want T100 series timer with fireman's switch that turns off heater 10 minutes before turning off pump:

If you have energy-saving 2-speed pool pump, and thermostat and pool light, then buy P1353 digital timer with enclosure. Enclosure and timer sold together as P1353ME.
P1353 is not easy to wire or program for novice, so you can add a comment or repost question on fixya and I will catch it.

I'm looking for Paragon 4000 series trippers set. Do you know a supplier for those trippers ? Thanks in advance. Regards,

Paragon 4000 series uses X2772 tripper.
Paragon is no longer making timers and parts, except defrost timers.
4000 is not defrost.

Internet search for X2772 tripper shows results, and most are very expensive.
Some Intermatic timers sell for less than being asked for paragon trippers, depending on model.

Replace timer with Intermatic using cross-over reference:
