Default Grey Corny Feet!

So anybody had any luck with figuring out a trick to put new feet on corny lids? I have already broken 1 that I paid for and now I have two that were given to me so if I break one I'm okay but I would prefer not to if you know what I mean.

THanks

file/sand a champfer on the bail. get it started and tap it on with something solid. they cost like a buck per, which is a rip-off if you asked me. i need new ones and am hoping to make some from brass someday.

Are we talking about the little rubber condom things that go on the end of the locking mechanism?

If so, I used a toy barbie boot on one of my cornies.

I bought some that were way to small, impossible to get on! I found a drill bit that was a tad bigger than the hole and reamed it by HAND, don't try with a drill. It was a tedious, suck ass project.

Bring a small pot of water to a boil and drop them in long enough to soften them slightly. Then while they are still warm fish them out with a spoon and push them onto the lid.

WD-40 should lube them up. Will dry out and leave them stuck on.

I tried boiling and wd-40 and every other trick. Physically enlarging the hole is the only thing that worked.
