Where To Buy Leather Strap Protectors?

Anyone know where to purchase those small leather 'ears' that go around the camera-strap mounting lugs? They protect the camera from scratches made by the D-rings. I don't even know the proper name, that would help with a search. No luck on the OEM accessories site (Pentax/Ricoh USA) and eBay is useless unless you can narrow the search somehow, 'Camera Strap' yields about a hundred pages, adding 'protector' or 'connector' doesn't turn them up.
They are standard equipment with newer bodies like the K-5.
Any help appreciated!

Got' em!

Thanks, Kain + Zany225, with your help I found them! 'Leather camera lug strap protectors' did the trick. There's only a few suppliers around, guess they're not in much demand.
I appreciate it!
