DA Limiteds - lens cap suggestions

The lens cap on the DA Ltd 40 is so small and is of the screw on type - not very convenient and could easily get lost. Are there better alternatives for the DA 40 and for the other DA limiteds?

I have seen some photos with the lens cap being attached to the body with a velcro / wire - where can I get those?

Thanks

For the 49mm filter threaded lenses I use the Pentax plastic lens caps found here.

I also went the e-bay route, but found they only have a single release clip (not a double like larger caps) and it can be knocked off pretty easily. So, I drilled a little hole in from the side of the cap, Threaded a little piece of cord, tied a knot on the inside of the cap, and then made a loop such that I could thread the cap through the loop and effectively attach it to the camera strap. Didn't lose a single cap in 3 weeks in Italy (but came close several times had it not been for the little pendant).
