Horizon Hobby has a collet-type adapter that fits, but you can get practically any adapter you want from www.ecubedrc.com.

OH shoot. I thought you were looking for a prop adapter. It looks like you want a prop SAVER.

Well, that's a different story... On a motor the size of a Power 25, a prop SAVER is not practical. If you put enough rubber bands or orings on the prop to hold it in place, it will be held on so tightly that the prop will break in a hard landing. The prop won't stay on if you use only enough bands/orings to allow it to pop off in the event of a hard landing.
