    I am just in the middle of doing this; so here's my secret - don't tell anyone. ;)

    Go to HomeDepot and get the 1" white rubber round tips that you would put on a chair.
    They will be a little snug on the threads and may even need to be screwed on.

    At least that's how my trial went - I am removing 2 old GPS antennas (don't ask why I have three).

    interesting. I wonder how they'll hold up in the salt and sun.

    They are under $3 for four so I will not really worry about having to replace. In my case I would like to reuse both eventually.

    It’s been a while, but I think I capped off one on my Uncle’s boat for him with a threaded PVC cap from the plumbing section at Home Depot.

    It's a different thread but I am sure you can "wrench" it on with some force.
