Default What can I use as a quick replacement for a base grommet?

I just got a new base but it was a tad smaller than my last one so i had to shave quite a bit off my base grommet, now the damn thing isnt air tight.
I tried using some kitchen roll to block it up but that failed as well :S

Any ideas?
Cheers

Try taking the base grommet off all together .. and using the moist paper towel method.

I also reallllllly like this base grommet. I got rid of my old black grommet and replaced with this. http://saharasmoke.com/store/catalog...t-p-16836.html
