Hotshoe covers

Hello,
I have lost the hotshoe covers to both my K1 and KP. Does anyone know where to get them?
Thank you.

Last year, bought a double handful (10) of hot shoe covers which had built-in spirit levels - not ultra hi-tec, but good enough for a quick and dirty positioning, before checking with Linhof 3-way level after grabbing first few shots.

I have never managed to lose one so far despite being of the opinion that the HSC is the single most useless accessory ever included with any camera.

I have the 100th anniversary one. Its a pain! There is a lip on it that allows you to grip it to slide it off. The lip also catches on bags when you put it in. I have nearly lost it more times than I care to mention. Buy one by all means but buy a cheap one too for everyday use

is this report about the 100 year anniversary hot shoe correct?
RiceHigh's Pentax Blog: The Quickly De-coloured 100th Anniversary Hotshoe Cover

or again one of those "pentax is doomed" reports.

You should have splurged for the 100th Anniversary Hotshoe Cover/Case Gold boxed set.

Mine did the same. Oxidisation took place within two days. I am not even slightly impressed. Its gone in a box, in a safe place and will probably stay there
