Britek Softboxes - Missing Something?

I just bought a Britek lighting kit w/ 2 softboxes. I assembled them based on the instructions on the forums, and they seems to be just great - only one thing. They have velcro strips at the back (where the softbox meets the light) but they didn't actually come with anything to put at the back, which of course, mean that light is coming out of the back of the softbox. Do these sofboxes just not come with these? If not, can I order some anywhere - or did Britek just forget to include these pieces in my kit?

I don't know about britek equipment at all but I would say there is another black hood missing that probably velcros onto the back like many other softboxes to act as a light block from the back of the unit.

Or... the briteks are like chimeras, which allow folding back part of the box to improve air circulation and decrease heat.
