You can buy o-rings in various sizes and materials on McMaster-Carr (external link).
Buna-N is the least expensive material (P/N 9262K634). $5 for 100 pieces, plus shipping.
Silicone will likely be softer (P/N 5233T41) but costs $13.13 for 50 pieces.

Well, I was going to buy some O-rings.. but then I remembered I have some plain old rubber hair bands in a drawer. These are smaller than most... and look something like this:

http://www.ebay.com …-/230736267527#vi-content (external link)

so I grabbed a bigish one(for the ones in this package) and did it double around the foot of the 430ex ii, and put it on the rf-603 and Whoot! works perfect! wiggle and jiggle and it doesn't fall apart anymore.. Thanks so much!!!

I'm happy to report that after a year I haven't had an issue involving O-ring failure or anything of the sort.

And my 430ex2 has stopped sliding out, in my case I didn't have O rings handy, but I did have some hair bands for mini braids, they look something like this:

Thanks again, Seoul4korea.

I bought #41 o-rings from Home Depot. I converted your 14mm diameter, 1.5mm thickness into inches and the closest was this #41 size...

9/16" diameter, 1/16" thickness.

It was about $1.50 for 10 o-rings. Enough for 5 RF-603's (I have 4)
