    You can buy replacements from DIRDirect. A carpet tile would be a cheaper way to do it. Not seen anything else ready made

    Piece of old neoprene from a wetsuit.


    Band of duck tape on the cylinder

    Gorilla tape is a bit thicker than ordinary gaffer tape and might offer a bit more protection.
