Default Where to find hose clamp ends??

Where can I find those little rubber ends that you put on the end of a hose clamp so it will protect your skin from getting sliced open?

I have looked and cant find them.
Need to buy a bunch!
Thanks

Make them yourself using PLASTI-DIP and a piece of metal the same width and thickness of your clamp. After it cures, just pop it off and put it on your hose clamp. That should do the trick. The PLASTI-DIP comes in all kinds of colors too!

i just put the the plasti-dip stuff on the hose clamp itself, you can't back them out, but that really isn't a issue most of the time. (just do it after you run the end through the clamp and not before.... )

I like the heat shrink hose clamps. They are not reusable but you definately dont have to worry about cuts.
