Why not just replace the protective rubber cover over the tip of your trekking pole? You should have them with you anyway if your poles travelled with you on public transportation.

Personally, I prefer to use my poles "handle-up" if there is space to do so.

  I used the rounded white plastic top from a generic 50-mL plastic bottle I found in one of my gear boxes. I fit it on the end of my index finger like a small thimble and pushed it up into the fabric peak above the grommet tab. It is approximately the same size as a cap from a Ben's DEET bottle if that helps...probably not a good idea to use a DEET-contaminated cap next to the spinnaker fabric, though :-) 

  One of those little travel-sized shampoo bottle caps might be about right. Or a chapstick top....
