    Does anyone know where I can get some replacement covers/plugs for the little air holes in the sides of a cabinet incubator? I have a GQF sportsman cabinet and it has some uncovered holes that you would use for ventilation or to put a water line through. It would be nice to find some of those plastic things that snap into those to close them as needed
    thanks

    Try looking for thread protecter caps and pipe plugs at your local plumbing/hardware store . They should have them in a wide range of sizes with some being beveled down to plug interier openings . Measure the hole first then measure the the caps or plugs for a good fit .

    I think you can get them from GQF if you dont like ducktape.
