Flash terminal plugs?

Anyone know where I can get some of these? The little plastic plugs for covering the flash terminals on the body? I have an SP II and an S1a, and neither one of them has the plugs. I've checked ebay, but no go, unless Nikon uses the same sized plugs. Also checked KEH, with no success.

You will see these for sale on eBay from time to time.
Collectors pay silly prices for these, especially the original Pentax joined pairs.

I'll keep a lookout for them, but I sure won't pay much, haha, just would be nice to have.

If you have a camera repair shop in town they should have them. I went to one close by me and got six plugs.

I think I have some if you want. The psotage across town is more than they are worth.

I'm next up to use the Sigfhtseeing Screwmount in a week or so. If you want to get together to shoot and also avoid the postage - I'll bring my little bag of plastic bits along.

PM is good

Depending on how many you want, John Russell of the Pentax Shop on e-bay has them. They are listed as Canon plugs and are slightly larger than the original Pentax. I have them on my S1a and Spottie II.
