How to lock down the gain control knob?

Once I gain-match my four ULS-15's, I would like to place a cap over the gain control to avoid accidentally touching the knob and altering the gain. Does anyone have a creative idea on what to use?

I would try tape, but the gain knob is so sensitive that you can't place tape on it without altering the gain.

Can you tape a paper / plastic cup over the knob without touching the knob?

Not enough clearance. The only thing that I have found that is the right size is a clear plastic cap from a pump spray bottle. It is the right size, but I can't figure out how to make it adhere to the sub's plate amp. I tried double-sided tape, but it just won't hold.

Edit: What I need is about the same size as one of those little paper cups you squirt catsup in at McDonalds, but a lot stronger.

In case anyone is interested, I found a reasonable solution. I purchased a pack of 3/4" plastic two-hole conduit clamps at Lowes for 80 cents. I attached the clamp to the plate amp using double-sided tape. The gain control knob is now protected from accidental touching, yet is accessible for intended adjustments.

Thanks for sharing! Some time ago, one of my cats nudged the gain knob up on my VTF3-MK4 (paired with a VTF-15H) up about 9 dB. The knob is so sensitive that it doesn't take much of a nudge to do that. I didn't recognize what was wrong until after an hour or two of music listening. For a while, I just thought my bass perception was unusually acute that day.
