Pretty sure this won't work...

1. These sensors are very close to the ABS wheel so something like duct tape might interfere and you could damage the sensor.

2. They are Hall effect sensors so they work by detecting the moving metal in the sensor wheel that is mounted to the hub. While these sensors do have to be close to the metal to work, something non-metal between them and the metal wheel should not affect the sensor. These are not optical sensors that you can fool with tape.
