Frame end caps for RowFrame rigs

These end caps keep popping off on me. I think it's from the heat. I come out and they're just laying on the ground. Any solutions or alternate caps? Click image for larger version

Try a little hairspray inside em, if they're tight, they should stick.
Cheap stuff works best, something rain is what I've used and got.

Thanks. They were glued on originally and the fit is already very tight. They're hard to get back on, actually.

I added a little contact spray adhesive, like what you might use to glue foam to a dry box, and those little caps seem to be staying in. I figured I'd lose one eventually and got a couple extras since they're so cheap.

I'd think those are probably for the 1 1/4 nominal pipe size, and garyframes are usually 1 1/2...

Got the 1 1/2 plugs linked above. Hope they work. Markhusbands, did you have problems with the black rubber caps that came with your RowFrame popping off too?

I bought my pipe from Alreco in Brighton, and added all the other parts from Gary, so I did not get the rubber ones to start. I originally wanted to get aluminum caps but the only ones I could find were sort of spendy once shipped, so these little plastic ones did the trick. I might add better adhesive at some point, but at present they cover the cut edge of the pipe and make it look a little more polished.

The problem with the NRS plugs is that the moment they dry out you have black smudges everywhere. It's like they turn into charcoal.
