Re: Temporary Screw/Bolt Hole Sealant
Don't inject anything -- instead, buy a roll of aluminum tape (you can find it in the HVAC section of Lowes/Home Depot) and tear off small pieces to cover the holes. Although it has a tenacious adhesive, unlike duct tape, Gorilla tape, or masking tape, the aluminum tape won't leave a sticky mess behind and it cleans off very easily. It weathers very well. I've got a couple of screw holes I covered with it over 18 mos. ago, and the tape's still doing its job like a champ.
Good one, PorFin! I've used duct tape in the past, and that adhesive is indeed a PITA to get off. I'll use the aluminum tape in the future.
