You could try contacting ATN who make a large fraction of the ones sold by various vendors.

You could also "adapt" the upper 1/3'd or so of a large plastic bucket for much less cost and it will work.

Re: Snuffer collar

Use the bucket as a mold. Apply some release agent (cheapest is washing up liquid in a thin layer).
Prewet some roving with epoxy and lay up a strong collar, you could even use some Kevlar on the inside surface to increase wear resistance.
Pop it out of the mold trim & finish.
