bearing cover

Hi
Hopefully a simple question. I have lost one of my plastic bearing covers (pushes in and has a v small hole in the middle that the grease squirts out of when you grease the bearing). It is a Hallmark Coaster 3 trailer and the diameter of the lip that pushes in is a tad under 5cm.
Any ideas where I can get a new one or should I fit bearing savers.
Advice welcomed - thanks.
Neil

Any trailer place should stock them, however bearing savers are the way to go IMHO, if grease comes out of the little hole on the one you have, guess what water gets in !!!

Bearing savers aren't expensive and are definitely the way to go.
