Where can one find a replacement battery compartment end cap?

After a fairly exhaustive search on the Googles, eBay, and the parts store here at ifixit, I have been unable track down a way to purchase a replacement end cap screw for the battery compartment for a Magic Trackpad. Any ideas?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I'm pretty sure (someone check me on this?) that the cap is the same as the apple wireless keyboard, in which case eBay would be your best bet, here's one.

You can also see if a "genius" bar will give it to you for free. They do it with keycaps, so you never know.

Yeah I'll be keeping an eye on eBay for sure, I figure that's probably my best bet short of ifixit deciding to carry it. I still have the one that came with it, but I'm planning to take a crack at modding it to power it via USB and was planning to drill through the screw cap to run the wire and wanted a spare just in case I totally bork it.

This eBay posting seems to have a consistant supply. They salvage parts, wireless peripheral battery covers included, from broken units.
