A hollow cylindrical portion of the cap insert has an external diameter substantially equal to that of the cavity and is received in the cavity. A perforate plate portion of the cap insert extends across the interior of the hollow cylindrical portion and is perforate in at least one of a plurality of spatially differentiated regions of the plate portion. A cover slide is carried by the cap insert and is rotatably mounted in the interior of the hollow cylindrical portion thereof. A plate portion of the cover slide has an aperture therein and slidably contacts the perforate plate portion of the cap insert. A collar portion of the cover slide has wall members each extending substantially perpendicularly of the apertured plate portion to define therebetween a passage communicating with the aperture in the apertured plate portion. The caster includes a lid member which is adapted to be detachably mounted to the generally cylindrical wall portion of the hollow body to extend across the cavity.
