Would this allow you to have the flash in a "bent" position, or only straight up?
And that is why I wrote earlier I used black tape to the sides. it even then leaked a little due to the holder isn't flush with the flash head.
I have used my flashes quite hard, and kept a finger on the gel and/or flash head every now and then to make sure it isn't melting, and it's not even kind of warm, so at least for me, melting is a complete non issue. As long as the gel isn't touching the flash head, I'm not worried.
Another option might be a black elastic wristband, like this:
That would cover the gap entirely and allow you to use the gel reader.
