I picked up some from Redco (inexpensive) in the past but there are many places and different manufacturers such as REAN, Amphenol and Switchcraft...
The cup material on these is an HDPE plastic that is as flexible as rubber, so melting a hole for the socket is easier than drilling as it bends and stretches. Make it just big enough so the socket will fit with some force as the plastic will catch on the threads. Clean up the excess melt with a sharp blade and there is also no room in behind for the retaining nut but hot glue sticks to the PE plastic perfectly.
