I think I still have one from my last AC hose repair. I'll put it in the mail if it's that important to you but I imagine you can fashion one pretty easily.
If you happen to have the one that goes on the compressor end of the compressor to condenser hose I would be happy to pay you for it. The hoses all seem to have different sized ends on them.

I don't know how I would make one. Are they able to be removed and re-used on another hose?
