I have a damaged PCI-e slot. Lucky for me the pc works just fine if I dont use that slot. The pins have been fine for a while but I would like to stick a piece of cardboard or something in there to make sure none of the damaged pins ever try to move and accidentally create a short. I just need to know what material is safe to put in there that wont damage things and wont cause issues with the PC if possible. Thanks.

Anything non-conductive, like cardboard or plastics.

Aren't some materials very static prone? Would that not matter once I get it in?
