Wow, is it really so hard to find those little caps? I
know that Halsey Import here in Portland Oregon has
them for cheap. I keep getting surprised about how
good I have it living close to them so I can get all
my parts from them easily.

Here's their webpage just in case someone doesn't have

I've only had the original ones go bad, never one that
I've put on, but then I've only owned them for 5-10
years. I was surprised to hear from Loren that shoving
something in the end of the hose actually worked
better, but I think I'll stick with the little caps.
They cost pennies last time I got them and I like how
clean it looks. (But yes, in a pinch I've used the
bolt into the end of a hose idea too.)
