Depending on the size silicone fuel line used a .177 air rifle pellet secured with fine wire works well. Smile

Haha, you guys seem to have to many guns over there. I've used the head of a finishing nail, I guess we all take what we have at hand...

Kris:

The groove around the pellet helps secure the wire.

Don't Swedes used nail guns? Rolling Eyes

I have some plugs made from brass rod with a curl or bend in the end. Can also go buy some fuel dots, the have a nice wide end to them so a cosmetic finish can be done, if desired.

Solid rivets work beautifully. I stole the idea from Kim and have been very happy using it ever since.

I've used .22 pellets to plug bladder tails. It's like they were made for the job. I just knot them now. Getting simpler and simpler.
I want to delete my first "How to make a bladder" video and re-make it. I made it look way too hard.
