You mean without dis-assembly?
I want to not have to disassemble the rags and bolts, that's why I thought of the innertube piece.
I already took it apart once because against my better judgement I followed the instructions to put the rags both inside, OK, I'll try it, pulled the sprocket way to close to the spokes, so I re-assembled it to a spoke sandwich, much, much better.

I like the heat idea.
Just heat the high side right? I am thinking the pressure of the bolts will pull it down, correct? (sorry, you just said that, ADD strikes back!
