Kapton tape should do the trick. If you are in a pinch, regular sticky tape would do but remember that the glue on regular sticky tape isn’t designed for high heat. It may end up drying out later on. The tape is only there so that no part of the heatsink touches the contacts and shorts them.

If you are adventurous like me, you can use some nail polish clear enamel to cover but a THIN coat as the CPU still dissipates some heat through itself.
