I asked this same question. I was told get a hold of him, locke his body between you legs and slide a hand up and hold is mouth shut then tape with the other.... It is much easier with two people because you can hold him and the other person can tape. When I was first doing it I mad a mini loop with a slip knot to pull his mouth together before a moved my hands. Maybe someone will give you more specifics then I got with more experience.

I noticed the post I answered about the 55 gallon tank if he is just a hatchling there is no need to tape his mouth shut...

if hes 18" then a 55 gallon is definately to small for him.... you should just build a big pond to last him...

Its not really good to be tapeing and untaping thier mouths alot it stresses them out and really has little purpose you can hold them without getting bit, now as hatchlings its hard to pick a caiman up becuase they are shorter more limber and quicker to bite but as they get bigger they are much easier to pick up and they ussually quit being so snappy after a while.......
