Default Temporary Bowl Grommet Issue

Hey HP,
I lost my bowl grommet last night, and though I am getting a replacement shipped to me from my boi Mahir, that will take a few days. Is their anything I can use to create an airtight smoke until that arrives?

some suggest wet paper towel or cardboard. Tape might also work. I've not tried though, got a huge stash of grommets

just take a paper towel, wet it and wrap around the stem until desired thickness is achieved. You can also do that for your hose port

dont use tape, because that will get hot and the adhesive can melt and run down your stem.

Paper towels sound like a good idea. I have used some foil before and it worked great as a grommet.

TEFLON TAPE!!! hell teflon tape will make a permenant gromment... teflon tape is the stuff they rap threaded pipe with (used in plumbing). Go to a hardware store and get some its like 75 cents for a roll! lol my friend threw his grommet away and I used the tape... he will never need a gromment again! lol
