Busted pad

I have recently got a torn pad, LH side Eb. Couldn't be better placed to cause trouble as it obviously affects everything below top E. As a visit to a tech is out of the question for who knows how long I've resorted to Stephen Howard's suggestion of using kitchen wrap which works surprisingly well but does need a fair amount of attention over a few hours playing. I can live with this as I won't be called to play live any time soon but I wondered if there are any suggestions, either alternatives or ways to keep the wretched stuff tight and in place, I'll probably try a wire twist from a package of bread, but I just thought I'd ask. I'm not going to try to replace the pad myself as that way disaster lies.

OK, thanks, I don't have a heat gun or a hot glue gun, although I have lots of screwdrivers so I'll both ponder on changing the pad or, most likely, hope I can get to a tech before too long.
