The bad news is that we do not have any replacements in stock.

We have some easy Due It Yourself suggestions.

1) Make up a silicone or rubber plug.  The dimensions are Top Width of the Plug is 10.05mm and 6.00mm thick with a 3.9mm stem that is 2.5mm deep.

2) Search for the source of this plug on You will find multiple sources. Search the phrase "silicone rubber cover/cap for flashlight switch on/off buttons" for sources.

The phrase is somewhat long.  Remember that the Chinese are trying to use as many words so that their products are recognized.

Ask for a sample of the product you find.  This way your costs will be minimum and you can order from different vendors until you find the correct one.
