    NoOOOOoooOOOoo! This EDPM foam is way too large diameter. Home Depot and Lowes does not carry the diameter of EDPM foam for these 1/4" steel rods (and it is not available as repair for any guitar stand, period). And if you over-pinch the metal flange, or break the cheap rivet, you don't throw it in the trash. You expand it back with a chisel, screwdriver or needle-nose pliers. The rivet is easy to drill-out, and replace with two nylon bushings, a long screw, two washers and a lock nut. All scratches and chips can be sanded smooth, and blended out with satin black spray enamel. The correct foam to use is available online listed with a 1/4" ID. To answer Joey DH (and everyone else's concern with nitro-cellulose finishes) Yes, all this Chinese foam rubber and any other hose material will react, and eat through many finishes since they use poor-quality ingredients, and toxic curing methods (find an American or German manufacturer? Good luck). For vintage guitars, replace or cover the reactive foam tubing on all new and old stands and hangers with thick felt, available at craft stores. Cut the sheet of felt into 1/2" wide strips. Cover one side with rubber cement, cover the rods with the same and let them dry 5 minutes. Wind the felt around the rod like a spiral, without overlap. You can easily add another layer the same way, and replace it years later the same way.
