Title says it all. My fridge interior has several holes from the bolts that held shelves and what not. What should I use to seal up these holes? Some might get used for shelf brackets but the others I will need to seal up.


Would a short sheet metal screw with washer do the trick? If the screw is too small in diameter, insert a piece of wire in the hole for the screw to grab.
If you don't have any bolts or screws to plug the holes with you could super glue some thin metal flashing over them (or epoxy). If you apply the patch on the outside of the smoker it won't get hot enough to compromise the glue. is reader supported and as an Amazon Associate, we may earn commissions from qualifying purchases.
