These metal screw bands for mason jars help seal home canned foods airtight. Screw bands are applied before processing, just until fingertip tight. After processed jars have cooled for 24 hours, the screw bands should be removed and wiped dry; they may then be replaced on the jar, or stored.
Bulk pack of 1250
Size: Standard mouth (70 mm)
Screw bands can be reused, but SNAP lids are designed for one-time use only.
For best results, fill hot jar with prepared recipes, leaving recommended headspace. Wipe jar rim and threads with a clean, damp cloth removing any stickiness. Center hot SNAP lid on jar. Apply screw band just until fingertip tight; do not overtighten. After processing, remove jars from canner and set upright on a towel in a draft-free place. Do not retighten screw bands or check for seal while jars are hot. Cool processed jars upright, undisturbed for 24 hours. After 24 hours, check seals. Sealed lids curve downward and do not move when pressed. (Any unsealed jars should be reprocessed or refrigerated.) For all sealed jars, remove screw bands; wipe and dry bands and jars. Store screw bands separately or replace loosely on jars, as desired.
NOTE: Mason jar SNAP lids sold separately.
Bulk mason jar screw bands are non-returnable and non-exchangeable.
