Default New Ways Sealing the Hookah

I have used multiple methods to seal the hookah: ranging from when I first started smoking and using the rubber grommets, to electrical tape and paper towels, to now using the rubber grommets and paper towel.
I was wondering if anyone has other ideas of how to seal the hookah. The paper towel/rubber grommet works good, but I want something even better.

I'm a little unclear where exactly you're trying to seal the hookah? It should only need the rubber grommet. Of the top of my head, it sounds like you might need a different sized grommet, or perhaps you've got a bowl that's just sized awkwardly for the hookah you're using.

More details might get a clearer picture though.

The rubber grommet works fine on its own, but the stem is still wobbly. I am using a 32" KM (no chiller, one hose, forgot the specific model name) from hookah-shisha.

Then your base grommet's too small. The fit should be snug. Wrap the grommet with some electrical tape and you should be good to go.

Rubber stoppers. Several vendors list them in their accessories section.
