    Any sort of soft poly, etc, is a better idea IMO.

    YMMV.
    It's not a fire hydrant gasket and never had any problems taking the weight on and off.

    Did yours ever leave a rubber residue?

    They're never hard to separate, the rubber just leaves this gooey residue (or dries solid to the paint).
