    I put a little duct tape X over it? Hoping it will do? What do you think?

    Somebody here on BYC mentioned using one of those things placed in the middle of a pizza to keep the box lid from hitting the top of the pizza.

    Maybe cut a sponge to fit the well?

    The sponge is a great idea. I'll try it.
