O-Ring Cord and Splicing Kits This site is for o-ring cord which just so happens to be EPDM material that replaces the old seals in port-lights, port holes etc. Do not buy a kit, measure existing seals for proper diameter and email them for a quote on a 100 ft. which is thier min. order. My $42 each EPDM 5/16ths seals cost me .39 cents a foot to replace. So 100 feet cost me $39 plus shipping to replace all the seals on my port lights.

Id use butyltape, same stuff they glue carwindowscreens with. Its strong, since front screen and back window of a modern car is part of the structure of it./ Harry

Don't use butyl tape for gaskets! We don't even recommend using it for bedding. Use a high density neoprene rubber with a soft durometer. Its expensive but will take and keep the shape and will remain soft for much longer than anything else.
