Posted:My friend was spinning my electroglos last week and I must not have put the rubber cap back on properly after turning the battery. As she was spinning the cap went flying and mysteriously we could not find it anywhere Any advice as to where I can get myself a replacement rubber cap offhand anyone?

Posted:Any hardware or department store.... or even some supermarkets.

They are sold as chair stoppers (rubber bits on bottom of chair legs)

Posted:That exact thing happened to me! Luckily i found it a few days later, but i'm pretty sure they're the same things on the bottom of chairlegs (as was said) and also some walking sticks.

Posted:they're both right - 2p pieces also fit in the end very snugly if you want to add extra weight, and they're easier to come by than the washers

i've taken to carrying sellotape everywhere i take my electroglos - only way i've found of stopping the caps from flying off during collisions, bit of hassle but they're worth it


I can SEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!

Posted:I thought electroglow caps were the ones you find on the end of walking sticks. I usually go to a outdoors or disability aids shop for mine.

Posted:any hardware store has them... I do not know about a walking stick, but I know that they are used for the chairs.

In this world of tears, you need a sense of humor.
