Default Lucite for output jack cover?

Has anyone tried to use lucite to hold the output jacks on the back of a speaker cabinet? Just wondering if its feasable? (not sure if that's spelled right.)

You can use locktite, so long as it is metal, not plastic.

For plastic, a small dab of hot glue works nicely.

It'll work OK for home use. If you expect the speaker cab to survive gigging, better to use another material. Lucite and similar plastics are brittle and will crack under hard use.

Here's an inexpensive speaker cup:

You can use large fender washers
