sleeve for installing seals

Does anybody know where a guy can get more of the little sleeves that come with valve seals. I managed to install 3 seals before the thing ripped in two.
Do the installation tools make the sleeves unnecessary?
I don't see how they would protect the inside of the seal.

Thanks
