Default Where can I find a lens cap for my Tiffen adapter tube?

Hello all!
I got one of those Tiffen adapter tubes (41mm-43mm) for my C-5050, along with haze and polarizer filters. Anyone know where I can purchase a lens cap that will fit on this setup? I tried a couple of the local camera shops in my area, but none carry lens caps in that size.
Thanks!

You might consider an inexpensive step-up ring to match a popular size lens cap. I just bought the Tiffen OLYC2000AD, a 41-49 lens mount. Then I ordered a lens cap for my C2100UZ, also a 49mm, from Olympus. That way my lens cap says OLYMPUS so it looks like it came with the camera. I can use my 49mm Uzi filters on my C5050 now and I still have the 49-55 ring for mating with other filters.

Any big camera store should have generic lens caps...even for that size.

On my C4000, I use the Tiffen adaptor tube, their UV filter, and the tether on the lens cap (supplied with the camera) is long enough to snap right over the filter. I leave both tube and filter in place for lens protection.

I called all over town (Sacramento, CA) and couldn't find a 43mm lens cap so I went to Ebay and found them easily. The cap that came with the camera will fit on the filter but it's gonna be loose and will fall off.
