The nozzle from the epoxy gun should be placed firmly into the hole on the endcap. Without a good mate between the nozzle and the endcap, epoxy will ooze out onto the surface of the endcap instead of filling the hole.

Fill the hole of the endcap until a circular bead of epoxy can be seen filing the indented part of the button terminal.
