    Q:What size gap will this fit. I have a gap between the bottom of bulkhead and foundation that is about 3/4" inch wide and deep. I intend to use a water proof sealant on top of it. Is this the correct size or should I go to the larger or smaller size.

      Q:Can this rod be used to fill the gap between the wall and a baseboard heater (water baseboard heater, NOT electric)? There is quite a gap and I can't just caulk it, was wondering if this is safe to use this rod near the heater.

          Just what I expected
          I am not using this product for its intended use. I am a quilter and cut it up to replace the very costly Pinmoors used in quilt layering.

          I had never heard of this before. And my painter told me about it. It works amazing when you have little gaps. And you don't want to redo an entire door casing or any other area that just needs a little filling. It's easy to use and very inexpensive.
