Here's a different thing to cool

My USB tick gets really hot during long fie transfers, I found putting pennies on it kept temperatures lower (it was no longer painful to touch) How can I stick them on, I know you can buy adhesive TIM but I've got some non-adhesive stuff and I'm not spending out for a cheap 'stick.
I was thinking tape but it doesn't stick to the metal so well.
So any ideas on a different cooling method or sticking thing?

Small zip-ties would be cleaner.
