You must be talking about a really heavy duty aluminum tape, HS -- my experience with standard Al ducting tape is that you can tear it with your fingers just fine.

Re: Temporary Screw/Bolt Hole Sealant

Say Chris, just a thought:
Ace Hardware still sells black rubber stoppers (corks) in all sizes! Why not just "stick a cork in it" and then you can just pull them out, no cleaning needed.
They're in the little drawers, in the same aisle as the nuts, bolts, other miscellaneous hardware. Probably 1/3 the cost online, even from Ace online, but who else sells black rubber stoppers these days?!
