Not officially.
You could make one out of a sheet of silicon, but it’s easier and cheaper to just buy the replacement occasionally.

I have a few other tips in this thread..

I found some on eBay but it is expensive and with no way of determining it’s density I wouldn’t know what thickness to buy for adequate compression. Let us know what you learn!

I have bought a sheet of gasket material from an auto parts store that worked for years. You cut to fit and apply silicon to one side.

You would need a silicone that is around 10 durometer to be squishy enough to work. Cutting the silicone is the hard part. An exacto blade and a template will work well.

Emailed pump toys asking if they thought of making a better monster tube gasket. I got no reply but read in another thread they are real busy/ spread thin on staff.

Guys I use window neoprene tape it’s 5 mmx12 mm it comes with one side sticky just clean the old one off and put the new on works great buy from amazon or eBay or the local diy store it comes in a selection of sizes and you buy it by the meter very chap and good way to replace the gasket no cutting out from sheet only tools are scissors and a scraper and some cleaner to prepear the surface of the monster tube hope this helps

I made one by tracing out the shape on a sheet of 1/8" plexiglass. Cut it out with a fine tooth jigsaw, taped over one side then used a trowel to spread normal bathroom silicone caulking into it. Super strong and resistant to lubes...haven't had any problems with in years...
