Default Grolsch-style flip top bottles

I have a bunch of Liter bottles with the flip top on them. I've used them a couple times, and love them on Bottling day: they are much faster than 12oz bottles. However, I believe I am wearing out the little rubber grommets. Is there a easy place to pick these up? I haven't been able to find them online. Admittedly, I am a moron when it comes to doing research.

The bottles I have aren't actually grolsch bottles. They are brown.

They sell them on Ebay, just do a search or Grolsch.

I got a Craiglist score of 12 of those 1-liter bottles, and they are great!

Both AHS and Northern Brewer (you have to scroll down a bit) sell the gaskets you are looking for.

EDIT -- Yooper, you beat me to the punch!

If you're talking about the rubber washers, try Home Depot, Lowes, Ace, or any other HDW store. That's what I've been using for years.
