How do you install a brass compression cap on a shutoff valve?

I purchased this brass compression cap to seal off a second connection on a water shutoff valve temporarily. The clerk said nothing else was needed for this to work, but it does not seal, even with proper torque. Since the threads are straight and not tapered, I would not expect teflon tape or pipe dope to help with a thread seal. Is there supposed to be some sort of rubber grommet or insert with this cap to make it seal?

The bag should say "washer not included"....................... if they can afford the ink.

I cut my plastic disk rather tight and it sealed, a loose disk with a small ball of “Plumbers putty” under it so that as disk is forced, the putty ball flattens out and fills any void. For a temporary fix, put the flex line back on and assuming the other end is ½” F IPT, terminate with PVC or brass plug or ½” garden valve. The manufacture probably makes an extra penny by not including the rubber disk Read Less
