    3mm LED into 5mm LED holder?

    Ok, so how can I mount a 3mm LED into a 5mm LED holder/hole? Need some ideas, since the bi-color LED's that I got were 3mm (did not pay attention to that when I ordered

    Thanks

    ratshack have them? I want to finish my install (the major portions and get the pc running) this weekend, so I don't really want to wait for the holders. Know of anywhere else, just in case I feel like waiting another week?
