You could probably easily create circles of electrical tape with one of these:

The official DF dots look to be 5/16”. The punches come in 1/4” or 3/8”.

Looking at my crenellations pieces, there’s not a lot of flat surface on the bottom on which to stick the pads however. For those, you’d probably best cut strips of electrical tape to fit.

Personally, when I use crenellations, I keep them in place with a big wad (or wads) of white poster adhesive.

About those Amazon Rubber Protectors -
A 1/16" of an inch thick isn't bad, but I would notice the gaps. 1/16" sounds thin, but it really isn't with "picky people", like me.

It would be sweet if DF could sell sheets of the felt (about 1/64" thick) they use for resin to cut and fit whatever you want. They wouldn't need to be self adhesive, but that would be a plus. And then a sheet of the new black spots for replacing lost ones would be handy.
Agree about DF selling them. They are really useful in general for homemade terrain as well. I was going to use them for the crennelations since they slip off the city tiles somewhat easily.

Help us DF, sell us your rubber stoppers!

You could try this stuff. It's pretty thin. (about .02in or .7mm) Cut it into tiny squares or try a hole punch.

Would little snips of electrical tape work?
Not sure but I will give it a shot.

Thanks
These may work also. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01AC96R82/re ... B001ECSE2O

You would want to dig into "low profile rubber bumpers". Aside from crafting them yourself that is likely the best option. If you are okay with DIY you can use a punch of the appropriate diameter and a small hammer (I have a watch maker's hammer that works well for precision work) to punch them from a thin sheet of rubber and use a pinch of cement to attach them.

Don't have these in hand but if you have a Lowes close by you could always go there and take a look at them and see. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Scotch-194-Pac ... 1000278765
