Most cranks take a dust cap. This is to protect the threads-- when you want to take the cranks off, the crank puller threads into them. If the threads get damaged, threading in the crank puller can be, well, interesting, and thus so can removing your crank arms. Your shop probably has some lying around; I've some extras I've pulled off older bikes and keep for emergencies, I am imagine your local shop might do likewise.
