S10 filter housing is broken

Hi everyone.
Last weekend I decided to replace the fuel filter in my old good S10 (it is 2000), and broke the fuel filter housing. Now the truck is sitting in the garage, as I do not seem to find the replacement housing for it. And I was wondering, maybe the piece from the Chevy Express will work on it? Or maybe from some other GM truck? I have already tried out my local junk yards and stores, but did not seem to find anything suitable for my S10. Any help is appreciated, cause I am pissed off that cannot use the truck for now.

What housing? Are you talking about the plastic wrap-around strap that holds it in place? If so use some zip ties instead.

I've seen people put a self tapping screw through a large stainless hose clamp into the frame, unconventional, but works pretty well.

Absolutely! It took me some time to determine what do you call that piece I broke... And it is called 'housing'. I couldn't wait and ordered a plastic thing for Chevy Express yesterday (https://www.carid.com/fuel-filter-housings/), will take a look at it first, if won't work, will just return it.
Wanted to thank you guys for the ideas on how to keep it in place. Again, if that housing won't work out, I will try zip ties and self-tapping screw...

Strap, retainer? I'm not sure. Is there a part number anywhere on it that you could look up?
