Default cracked gasket on true blue bucket primary

My 3-pc airlock gasket has a hole in it, thus no air tight seal.

Any suggestions short of buying a new bucket?

I've bought rubber grommets at my home store (Menards) in the electronic wiring area. I think they were 3/8". I found these on Amazon:

You could use some silicone to make a seal.
