During close-out, there appears to be a few tiles removed (some sort of handle is temp installed) from the side hatch during the closing procedure. How are these re-installed in the few minutes the White Room close-out crew has prior to their departure.

I'm assuming these tiles are not "glued" back in-place. (Have mercy, I'm just a C-130 mechanic) Thanks!

I believe they are glued on with RTV.
