Garbage disposals, I love em, gets rid of all kinds of stuff, but when your forks, spoons, or any other 'jumpers' tried to escape out of the house, (I lost a instructable part I was building while scrubbing off rust) it can get annoying and worse dangerous.

    Hi there, I used a spare gasket from a rubber cover that came with the disposal (when I bought my new disposal, I kept the old cover, Home depot sells em for like $5.00)

    The gasket slips over the 3.5" shower drain cover (Look at the pics)

    Hope that helps

    What did you use for your gasket and how did you attach it?
