I would actually go to an auto store or home depot. You can get like more then 100 for that price. Also the 1.5 mm maybe a bit thick for your liking ( this has to do with the difference in force that's going to be required to push the 603 onto the hotshoe. I might even consider one oring being 1mm and the other being 1.5 mm

Yeah good advice. I'll just bring my YN and flash with me and try out different sizes while I'm at the store.

very nice solution. I think I will pick one ul for my cybercommander since it too fits by friction.

Hi, when you are measuring 14mm is this the total diameter or inside diameter. Fantastic solution, love my triggers but the fact they could slide of frustrated the hell out of me! Thanks!

14mm is the total. It's really nothing to stress about, really what it comes down to is find one that is big enough to slide on but small enough to fit snug.

I can't stress this enough! O-rings are O-rings! They can get sliced or damaged over time so make sure you look at them everyonce in a while.

^^I am waiting for mine to arrive from Hong Kong. :-)

That was the only place I could find the size you recommend at a decent price here in the UK.

Someone on Youtube showed that they used a women's ponytail hair band (essentially a rubber band covered in fabric) looped around the base of the unit. Seemed to hold fine.

Look at 5:35 in this video
