End caps for 1.5" & 1" square tubing

Anyone know where I can purchase endcaps for square tubing? Prefer the kind that slide into the tubing, or plug type. We added a deck & some bike tire racks to the top of our bus last year, would like to get the end caps to finish them off.

Located in Des Moines, IA, but would order over internet.

Thanks!

When I work with tubing and need to cap the ends I have used wood blocks. Drive them inplace. Then you sand them smooth or round them off. Then paint them and you can even tell there wood. But I was shopping one day and I seen plastic caps for the hitch on cars. I think the small hitch is 1'' and the bigger one is 1.5'' but it could be 2''. Thats all I got....

Thanks for the replies. I'll check out Northern Tool. Otherwise, the wooden blocks are not a bad (and cheap) idea.
