    Good to have a side business.

    If you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

    haha..I thought about it but at some point I'm sure id get sued. What i can do is make some for anyone if any of you want to buy the materials. The rubber kit is $35 ( + shipping the stoppers) and you get 4 stoppers from that in a bunch of colors. I have 5 molds ready to go. I was paying $20 per stopper (i think).Now I can loose them and not feel so bad
    Oh yea, I made these reinforced at the neck because the old ones dried out and cracked there.. And a little thicker base to stay put and not "wrinkle" as mine have over the years. Plus this material is pretty "sticky" to tile.

    Marc M,

    Next time you make the molds, make the flanges a little larger, that was the stopper will fully cover that square type shower drain cover showing its corners in your photo.

    By the way ... EXCELLENT work on finding an alternative.

    I think I have two, possibly three, of those shower stoppers left - I too used to leave them behind occasionally, so I usually bought 4 at a time. As long as I didn't leave them behind with the water running (never did that as far as I know), I just cringed and ordered some more. I usually left them behind because I would set them on the shower curb to dry before putting them back in my bag ... and on the shower curb they sat when I left ...

    Here you guys go... easy stuff to work with and like Jerry said, its a little softer than a rubber band but not as hard as the original stoppers
    Yea Jerry, funny you mentioned to make them bigger...Im doing that as we speak. A little larger flange. Good call.
    LMK if you need any..
