This is a great use for sugru. In the past, where you may have glued on a piece of rubber, or zip-tied on some foam, you can just mold a bit of this stuff. Sugru is so great. Nicely done!

It's a terrible use. You want something rigid, not flexible for reinforcement of a rigid area.

Sugru is pretty rigid.
