lost rear lens cap what can i use?

I want to remove my kit zoom to mount my M42 prime but can't find the rear lens cap for the k mount zoom, what is the best temporary solution to protect the rear of the zoom lens till I can find the cap or get a new one? I really want to switch lenses.
Thanks

In case you have not looked, you can get Pentax stamped rear caps on ebay very cheaply. Order a bag of 5 shipped, all for the price of one beer.

I did get some screw mounts sent from china 2 for AU$1.40, but it's handy to know gatorade fits in a pinch

The condoms would cost more than a five pack of caps, but i would never have thought of using them. I was thinking glad wrap and a rubber band

Here's an idea....mount to the camera and store it there. If you really want to change lenses for a while, just put the front cap on it and store it standing up. Do you live in a super dusty part of the world or in a hen house? Normal atmospheric conditions shouldn't be a problem worth losing any sleep over
