Pint charge port cap
I just got a Pint a few weeks ago and I have been trying to come up with a good charge port cover solution.
I think I found it in the form of a 12.07mm rubber grommet.
Nice tight fit. Sealed from dust and debris and splashing water. It even has a ridge so is easy to pry out with your finger to remove.
No 3D printing, no custom forming.
I bought this assorted grommet set from Harbor Freight. Someone could probably make some money buying a bunch of these kits and selling each grommet for more than the cost of the whole pack.

Just to be clear on what you did. You are using the 7.14X12.7 (7pc) with the 7.14 little plug (20pc). Yes?
That of course leaves you with 6 spares. Or if you are feeling it, a micro business, ready to go.
And, if you are setting up said business, which of those plugs will fit in the V1/+/XR plug?
Let me know if you figure it out and I will Paypal you some bucks for one.
It's the 12.07mm closed grommet.
After a bit of research online I discovered that 12.07mm is just 1/2 inch.
Hmm, looks like that assortment is not available from Harbor Freight (at least not from the online store). I bought it in a brick-and-mortar store probably a year ago.
I don't think Harbor Freight actually makes these kits.
Looks like these can be found on ebay:
This seller wants $10. I do not think I spent that much when I bought it in the store.
A little searching on ebay or google would probably find a better deal.
Maybe start with
I pulled out the calipers, took some measurements. Sat down and designed this little "Thumbs Up" cap. If it hits on that side hard enough to damage the pins . . . I've got more to worry about than that :D.

What exactly did you make that out of?
Just Brown PLA Plastic on a 3D printer. The hand is a scan of my own hand. Brown was the last color I had on the printer (for a client). Too lazy to change it to another color.
