I have a 1980s Garwood cookie jar with a wooden lid and the gasket has worn out. I hope you can help me find a replacement.

If you measure the gasket size you need, you may be able to find it at your local hardware store, or online like Walmart / Amazon, so forth.

I always say "let's make sure it's in park". Try a wide rubber band. If that doesn't work then off to plan B!!

If all else fails, I would try an auto parts store.

I would take the lid to places that sell gaskets and try it out. You need to measure the diameter of the lid and also the depth to get a good fit.

You'll need to measure across the gasket to find the size you'll need. Afterwards, visit this site on Amazon and order your new gasket.

Check on Amazon or E-Bay someone may have the same cookie jar and are not using it.
You can also buy a gasket at your hardware store.

i just went to Home Depot and bought a "Flush valve seal" for a toilet and it's the PERFECT size and fit - $1.78 - it's red but who cares?

Nope, what they offer do not fit my Winsome canisters. The inside and outside dimensions do not fit and the whole gasket is too narrow for the lip of the lid. Phooey!

A gasket or washer is just a piece of rubber. Often even a rubber band will work. Any piece of rubber can be cut to needed size. Buy rubber, washers, gaskets, etc. at a hardware store. If you have an exact name or part number, Google search that complete number within quotes. For example "Gasket #B-2-sqVx13854" to find place to buy that EXACT item!

A librarian can also help you find ANYTHING online as well as in the library! :-)
