Casting could work, but that would be an extra step to an already time consuming process. Considering that these can be bought for only ten cents each, it would make it even less cost effective. 3D printing "what the hell" projects like this can be fun (I've done a few myself), but there gets to be a point where I wonder what I'm doing and why.

I completely agree. This one definitely falls in that category. I think it will be nice to have so I can print up a spare or two when I need, and I'll probably throw one in a package here and there when I sell something. If anyone wants to pay ~$2 each for them though, by all means let me know

Made some adjustments, the cap stays on a lot tighter now (current revision is the second one in the video):

Here's the cross section I ended up with for the cap part.
