Missing rubber screw covers

Greetings all!
I recently purchased a used 2017 T21FKHW Flagstaff A-Frame camper. The sink is a Dometic (SMEV) VA7306US Round Sink w/ Glass Lid. There are 4 small rubber screw covers that also serve as bumpers for the lid. Unfortunately, 2 of them are missing. I have contacted the manufacturer and they said that this part is obsolete and they no longer stock it and after much online searching, I have found several sources, but all are in the UK or NZ....does anyone know where these might be found in the US? I have been to several hardware and fastener stores and 2 different RV stores, to no avail. I know I can use something else in a pinch, but I really want the OEM item (Dometic SMEV Spare Rubber Screw Cover).
Thanks!

The lowest cost for a set of 4 is about 11 dollars, which is reasonable, but shipping costs are more than that...I really donít want to pay 24 bucks for 4 small rubber plugs... will continue searching for a domestic source.

Go back to the hardware store and think outside the box. One must learn to adapt to live in the RV world. Hardware store. Not Lowes or HD.

these are sold in every hardware store.

rubber screw covers

Find a piece of foam or rubber (maybe hose) and cut whatever shape works best or you like best. Get the proper glue for possible water contact then cover the screws. I agree a hardware is best.

McMaster-Carr. Every repair shop in every factory in America has their big yellow catalog on the shelf. They sell a bizillion items and almost certainly have what you're looking for.

Go their their website. Good luck!

Sigh. They do have everything--but the shipping will kill you. Better places to start are eBay, AliExpress, and Amazon Prime.

Yeah, Val, but like the original poster said, every one that search returns is either in the UK, Australia, Europe, or New Zealand.

Can you find it within US/Canada?
