    Black Plastic caps on wishbone

    Hi,

    Does anyone know how to keep the black plastic caps on either side of the wishbone in place? I have been through two sets now (with rubber o rings) and they ain't cheap. Is there a trick to stop them falling out? Maybe I am just getting them nicked? Any help will be much appreciated.

    Cheers

    Dave

    There’s a make of electric lawnmower that uses the same black plastic cap that used to cost less than a pound in B&Q

    Fella, I’ve just bought the worlds biggest 3D printer so theoretically I could possibly make them at hopefully a lot less??? To be sure, are you able to send any photos so I know EXACTLY what you mean (tho I guess I should do)
