Step 3: Press ball into the center of the fastener you are trying to cover

Be sure to not depress the rubber too hard. If you do, just remove it completely and make a ball again. Then proceed with this step.

Step 4: Shape the rubber however you see fit.

In this particular case, I made the rubber rectangular.

Step 5: Allow Sugru to set for 24+ hours before putting any stress on it

Also, take note, this is a "permanent" solution. Do not use Sugru as a temporary cover for a fastener.
