Lyman tumbler plug

I seem to have misplaced the plug that keeps the polishing media inside the tumbler. I am going to order another one from Lyman. Anybody have a suggestion what would work in the interim.

Duct Tape??

It works for everything else.

Yeah, taping over it should do just fine. But that particular tumbler design is so totally stupid and worthless that I just completely sealed the inner bowl by placing aluminum tape over the slots and then filling each of them with hot melt glue to make it a normal tumbler. Now I do not waste my time by having the medial blown all over my reloading room while waiting for most of it to slowly get ejected into the plastic pan, and it is much less effort to simply pull the bowl off and dump it into a rotary separator (which you still had to do anyway after letting the stupid thing make a mess while draining!).

I used to love all things Lyman, but I have never gotten over being pissed at having been suckered to spend extra money for such a flawed and stupid design.
