Connector Cover - Where do you get these?

Not sure what they're called either, but if you're really desperate to find some and don't mind spending a few extra unnecessary bucks to get them, you can pick up some cheap splitters, and usually each RF connector will have one of these caps on it within the packaging.

...still open to ideas if anybody else can point me in a direction!

They do nothing to keep out moisture and do slightly better on dirt/dust.
I throw lots of them away weekly. They come on all DirecTv 6x8 & 4x8 switches.
My cat does like to bat them around from time to time though.

If that isn't feasible, I would get a number of terminators, cut out the center conductor, and put them on as caps with a good sealant. (And perhaps some electrical tape as well.)
