Default Cigarette lighter

Anybody know if there's some sort of a "plug" or cap made that will fit and cover the hole where the cigarette lighter goes in the radio bezel? I have a 99 ranger... when I bought it the lighter had been pushed through. I guess this is a common problem. I just got around to taking the bezel off today, the plastic rim that the lighter snaps into the back of the bezel is broken. I don't want to buy another bezel, I don't smoke so I don't need the lighter. I would just like to cover the hole. Thought I would put it out there to a field of ranger experts! Any ideas are appreciated. Thanks!

you could do like my buddie did with his and JB weld the lighter socket back in place from behind. left the lighter end in it but never used it, just wanted to fill the hole without buying a new bezel.
