non-shunting jumpers?

I have not seen a cover but how about an empty header shell. I forget if they're called C-Grid but it's the ones you have to crimp pins and insert into the shell. I have those "in stock" but usually not bigger than 2x13, but if I wanted to protect something, that's what I'd grab off my shelf.

    Hi all,
    Oddball question here: has anyone ever seen a way to cap off or protect
    standard 0.1" pin header jumpers? Maybe there exist jumper plugs that *don't
    *conduct across the two pins? I'm looking at a piece of hardware that has
    some jumper pins on top of the PC board and I'd like to protect against
    anything accidentally making contact.  I have seen surface mount 0.05 pitch
    pin headers come from their manufacturer with protective caps, but I
    haven't been able to find anything to apply to 0.1" pin headers that I
    could by aftermarket.
    Any ideas would be appreciated!
