Default How to seal the 3.5mm audio headjack port?

Hi guys,

Dust has been collecting in my Blackstone's 3.5mm port and I don't really use the port. So I've been wondering if there's some sort of rubber piece that I could buy to fill the whole up to prevent more dust from accumulating?

I've found this post but that turned up dead links on Ebay. However, other searches have led me to i-Close but it's not in English and I'm not sure if they even ship internationally.

Any help would be appreciated.

Cheers.

I personally like having a rubber cover for it, and if I wanted to block up the port I'd put a small piece of black paper/card over the hole. If you're able to divert sound away from using the headphone socket, you could maybe put a jack in and cut it right down so it doesn't stick out = you'd have a radio antenna.

Hi guys,

I've received the items and I would have to say that this is PERFECT (for me). It is even cute in the sense that the stub makes it look like a little ol' antenna.

Here are the pictures as promised.

Cheers.
