    I have a lg still air incubator, after shutting them down last time I put them on our back porch and now one of the clear plastic windows on the top are missing.. needing to set it back up but wondering what i could put back over the hole that the plastic parts suppost to go in? would shipping tape work?

    hadn't thought of that.. I dont that i can think of.. would have to cut it pretty exact not to let air escape too..

    Use the packing tape to secure it and it won't matter if it's not quite perfect also if you have any kitchen silcone laying around you can use that to fill in gaps [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
