Default Lost the capper bell

So it seems when I was using the bigger bell I misplaced my smaller bell. Now i have all my Red Ale in bottles with caps on them but no capper. What can I do? its 7pm no stores are open I know of and I don't know anyone with a capper. Can they sit til the morning? Should I search my house cause the beer is gonna get ruined? any advice? Anyone in San Diego wanna meet me with a capper??

Put a cap on each one to keep dust out and try to keep them as cool as possible to slow the yeast down until you can properly cap them. Even so, 12 hours without capping wont do too much to the end amount of CO2 you get.
