    If you heat the edges off the hole will that make the plastic smoother? I love this idea. Thanks.

    Thanks for posting. I didn't want the sticky from the tape after a few months to make it unusalbe. Looks like this worked to make it smoother and not have to use the tape. Saves me money too. :-)
