Lightbulb ABS reservoir black cap flat o-ring gaskets?

While performing the wheel caliper & abs control unit bleed on my 06 LT I was thinking about getting a spare gasket for the two little black reservoir caps in case they were damaged.

Guess what? You have to buy the entire vent hose & hose assembly, about $50.00.

A forum search was unsuccessful in finding a substitute for the flat o-ring bugger.

Has anyone improvised or found a suitable replacement that is brake fluid rated?
The part # for theVent hose with cover I-ABS 1 # 34517674836

I replace one of mine with a thin o-ring (round) and it seems to be working just fine.

Thanks John, next time I'm in there I will measure and set some aside just in case! The round one replaced the flat o-ring w/no problems?
