The screw on ones are only for the filter thread on the eyepieces and I can't recommend them enough, brilliant product.

The S'n'S AE posh aluminium ones are good as well. I got one and found the thick sticky plastic bit with the logo on covers a small hole in the middle, obviously left from the lathing process. If you pick it off it makes an excellent colli cap.

I needed one for my webcam and just searched on flea bay for 1.25" cover iirc and got a few very cheap plastic ones. They do the job though and I got some spares.

If the focuser is 1.25", just use a 35mm film canister: perfect fit and sufficiently long for a locking screw to hold it in place, if you want. (The also make good collimation "peepholes")
