You need the clothespin type clip or the flat leaf spring clip that came with the old plastic Cox planes and cars.
Or you can use a Merlin glow plug and clamp ring which is shown below.


Those are available at CoxInternational and ExModelengines. You'll need extra copper head gaskets when you run those, but they are good plugs and will accept a spring type stick igniter, but not a push-and-turn.

If you elect the Merlin plig (the one rusty is talking about) make sure you order the head shims and start with three shims and go from there. (Bandit)

Ok, I'll see if I can clarify things a bit here. Cox engines with the stock heads require the as stated Push on cox  clip or the clothespin type that clips onto the engine. The Merlin (insert type) which requires a clamp ring can take the push on (cox) clip, clothespin type or the spring loaded clamp type of glow battery, it is NOT compatible with the cam (Push and turn) type of battery like the Hobbico HOTSHOT brand of batteries. In order to use the Cam type you have to have a head adapter that uses a standard plug which are available from both Cox International or EX Model engines The Cam type will only work with a standard type plug which are found in the larger engines.

Sullivan does indeed make a adapter that fits the push and turn opening and on the other end is the Sullivan clothespin clip.

My spring loaded sub-c igniter is getting to where it falls off my inverted and side mounted engines

However it lights a plug brightly. The sub-c igniers don't last long with 1/2A because of their finicky nature and extended glow needs. This is also true of the push and turn shown below, but they do hang on tighter.


Here's what Ken is talking about


You can also get either type for your battery box
