If you have a kid that has a Razor scooter, you probably have this problem. :)
This is a parametric plug that can be used with an elastic cord to cover the end of a pipe. Using the default settings, it fits the ends of the handles of my kids' Razor kick scooters.
This also works with Customizer.
Choose some values in the "User-defined values" section if necessary, render, and print. Drill out the internal bridging, if necessary.
After I took the photo, I reprinted them in black ABS with 12 bottom layers, 3 top layers, 3 perimeters, and 25% honeycomb infill. This makes the plug solid plastic on the outside and a little bit into the pipe itself, which I'm pretty sure will be stronger than the PLA I used in the photo.
To replace an existing plug, grab the elastic band and clamp the end so it doesn't to into the pipe. (I used a clothes pin.) Drill out the old plug if necessary. Untie or cut the knot at the end of the elastic, thread it though the new plug, and re-tie. You may need to file the inside of the tube a bit if its really banged up.
