My used 1D III arrived today (!!!) but did not come with a cap. It came with a knurled "bolt" that holds the USB retainer in, which inspired me to create my own metal, screw in cap.

Does anyone know the thread pitch/size of the "bolt" used on the side of the 1D? Any information would be great!

The cap that covers the hole (Extension System Terminal cover) is called a Toe Cap, Part #: CB3-3599 I hear it cost $1.50 and you can get it from your local Canon service center.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

...the metal screw you currently using is meant for attaching the plastic USB cable protector when shooting tethered.

Why don't you make one out of carbon fiber? All you need to do is make a two piece mold off of a new cap and use carbon fiber cloth and epoxy. Then you can machine the threads so the fit nicer and sell them off. I'll buy a couple, lol.

Take Care,
Cheers, Patrick

This... Mine came the same way and I decided to just order four of them since shipping was like $6.00. I think my total bill was just over $12.00.
