Default Searching for a neat lens cap

Hi All,
I recently purchased the Oly C-4000 and absolutely love it. The only downside is the lens cap that must be taken off before turning on the camera. About 10 days ago I ordered a really neat cap that fits over the lens body and uses a spring-loaded lens cap that you just flip open, a great idea IMO. It was $9.50 and I paid using PayPal. Unfortunately a PC crash in the meantime means I have lost the address/web page of the maker of that lens cap. Does anyone have a clue of which one I'm talking about and where I might find it again. Much searching on my part has turned up nothing. This cap apparently will fit on several brands of cameras. TIA

Steve has even mentioned that lens cap in a few of his reviews.

It's not for me unless there's one that fits a CLA-4 filter tube...then again, when I add more filters it wouldn't work anyway...I'll just stick with the lens-cap-on-a-tether.

I am able to insert my tiffen tube with the lens cap on. It will not fit on the tube.

I am sorry. My tiffen is equivalent to the CL-1A tube by olympus.
