PG7 gland 'blanking plug'

Has anyone seen a source of blanking 'plugs' for PG7 glands - one that simply slides in the end of the PG7 in place of the cable, for an unused connection. They look like a small 'mushroom', and you simply loosen the PG7, remove the blank, and insert the cable.

We've got a few here on a piece of commercial equipment, but I can't seem to find them anywhere? - all I can find is a screw blanking plug that replaces the entire PG7.

Here's a couple of pictures of what it looks like.

I've seen a short piece of plastic rod used for the same purpose, with the end flush with the gland.

Unfortunately these will be used by people who 'dig holes in the road', so their technical abilities are pretty low - we really need to give them something they are already used to.
