Default Are There Any Replacement CA Glue Bottle Caps?

I tried to ask this question on the Towerhobbies website and they moderated it, and told me that It doesn't meet their guidelines!

My question was simply this: Are there any replacement bottle caps made for this glue bottle?
Link To Webpage: Tower Hobbies Build-It CA Thin Glue 2 oz.

No matter all the things I try to keep my glue bottles clean. They always manage to mess up the bottle caps.
1) After every use I use acetone to clean my bottle cap, and any extra tips.
2) I store the bottle in the refrigerator.
3) Sometimes I haft to soak the bottle cap in acetone just so I can get the top cap off! Apparently the fumes from the CA glue is enough to glue on the top cap.

I found these on Amazon, but I don't know if they would fit the Tower Hobbies Glue Bottles or not. I tried asking that question on Amazon. At the time of writing this, no answers.

2) Extra CA Over Cap 4ct For BSI CA Glue

This may sound silly but it works for me ( most of the time ) . As soon as you can after after use, wipe the tip clean then tap hard on the bench and wipe again, replace cap . Red

You can remove the plugged cap and just use the pipette bulbs too. They offer better control.

I like these tips they all most never get pluged up down in the tube. If the end gets messed up you can trim it 2 to 3 times and still have a good medium dia tip.
