They just stuffed fiber in it. Steve has a fan blowing air on to the connector at the strap which is a good idea. If you run with the long elements, make sure you can remove them easily since popping a pot is sometimes brutal.
When I pop mine in the gas furnaces, I pry under them while the furnace is really hot. Then they come out easily when it is cold. I would feel uncomfortable doing the with elements back there even though they would be turned off.
I plan to build mine with the equivalent of a refrigerator door on the front with a big wheel attachment below so I can swing the whole front open.
