    The only chance this will work is if you cut the material so it's a tiny bit too long for the groove. That way when you get it in there the ends are jammed up tightly.

    A vacationing penguin is driving his car through Arizona when he notices that the oil pressure light is on. He gets out to look and sees oil dripping out of the motor. He drives to the nearest town and stops at the first gas station. After dropping the car off, the penguin goes for a walk around town. He sees an ice-cream shop and, being a penguin in Arizona, decides that something cold would really hit the spot. He gets a big dish of ice cream and sits down to eat. Having no hands he makes a real mess trying to eat with his flippers. After finishing his ice cream, he goes back to the gas station and asks the mechanic if he's found the problem. The mechanic looks up and says "It looks like you blew a seal." "No no," the penguin replies, "it's just ice cream."

    That reminds me of the days when I was an apprentice, when men were men and ships were made out of wood. The forman would give you a reel of o-ring material, a tin of what was later called super glue, a knife and a go-nogo gauge. He would show you how to do two so you knew how to do it and on his mark "Don't fuck it up" you spent the day(s) until the reel was empty.
