Does anyone know where I can buy a cap for the base of my chair?

I have been using my Native Ultimate 15 FX all week and loving every minute on it.  What a boat!  

 

However, today I was reclining a bit in the chair in the high position, and all of a sudden the whole chair slipped out of the assembly and had me sitting diagonally on it.  When I saw that my chair foot had slipped out of the assembly groove that is dedicated for the high position, I simply adjusted the chair to the low position and kept going about my day of enjoying myself on the water.  When I came home though, I inspected the chair closer and noticed that only 3 of the 4 feet on the chair have the caps on them.  It looks like one of the caps is missing, which is what caused the chair to slip out of the groove.  Does native sell these chair caps for the feet of the chair as a stand alone accessory?

 

Below are a few pics...a couple shots of the cap that is on 3 of the feet on the chair (and what I am trying to purchase) and another shot of the cap missing on the chair.

The seat frame caps aren't a typically stocked item but can be ordered thru your dealer or the Native dealer who maintains this forum, Get Outdoors. They have one of the largest inventories of parts so it may be worth calling to check. 800-450-6819

When you get your new cap in, I suggest putting some glue like E6000 or 3M 5200 on the ends of the seat tube frame and then slide the caps on. The glue will keep the caps in place.

That's what I used on mine, it lasted about 2 months. I ended up drilling and putting a sheet metal screw in the top of mine, problem solved.

I bought a set of four 1" rubber chair leg cups for $1.  Fits on tight and works great.  I have one cup on one piece of the seat and three of the originals on the other 3.
