Yup used it, not sure it would pass muster with a rivet counter, but if you dont have the part it looks acceptable

Nice tip and I've done something similar twice using the red tops off WD40 cans and then I found out that Norbo sells new ones for 3.50pounds so until it becomes NLA its probably more about the fun of coming up with an alternative than a necessity. I was proud of my efforts until i bought the real thing for no money! lol

I find super glue gets brittle when cold and easily let’s go, epoxy 2 part glue is much stronger than super glue when it gets cold, and seeing my mrs won’t let me keep my bike in the front room overwinter......
