Baffles for Shake Flasks

Years ago, I used stainless steel baffles in shake flasks.  They consisted
of a strip of steel which hooked over the lip of the flask, then twisted 90
degrees and descended into the liquid.  It didn't interefere with the cotton
plug, and it was effective in acting as a baffle to increase the aeration of
the liquid.

Does anyone know if these are avilable commercially?
