    John, I think that GN7 mentioned just a Home Depot 4" waste line cap (you'd use a hose clamp at home) works..........worth a try.....

    I saw a pair of Nerf footballs stuffed into the collectors. They even matched the boat colors.

    I had some small Nerf balls that I ran in my old upswept Borlas. My wife looped through some string and made it easy to pull them out. They werent footballs but worked really well
