I’m making a bed frame using knockdown hardware for later disassembly. I have some brass caps to cover the bolt holes at the front. The holes are 3/4”, but the caps don’t fit in snugly – they appear to be more 11/16ths. Wondering if anyone had any good strategies to affix the caps – it needs to be strong enough to stay in, but not permanent so they can be removed later to get to the bolts. Was thinking some kind of putty that I could stick onto the bolt head then press the caps into – just not sure what type of putty would be best for that. Any other ideas?
