Another method involves a commonly available rubber "O" ring. This was not
my original idea, but passed along to me by another DIYer. The O-ring sits
inside the hole as opposed to how most shoulder washers work. It this
example it was used in a 3/8 inch hole for a pot with a smaller busing
diameter. But, this same O-ring should be just about perfect for bananas
too. I picked it up at Lowes. I am sure Home Depot and such carry similar.
I have long since lost the number. But, it was in the plumbing department
in a bin that had drawers of assorted washers.

Look for a thing called a "shoulder washer". They are made of nylon and can
be used to mount smaller things in bigger holes. They come in many different
They were standard for mounting 1/4" switches in the 5/16" holes of the
Serge 76 series.
