Just buy the $35 ones from Pelican. That's what I have used and they work fine.

If you find that the cups are constantly breaking, then the alignment is off and needs to be adjusted. The cups are plastic to serve as a weak pint that will break instead of damaging a $300 motor or gear.

Oh and this is only the second set of caps that broke in three years.
If that means anything.
