Replacement Canister Lids?

A canister lid.I have canisters with wooden lids. The lids have a silicon seal/ring that are worn out and no longer have a tight fit. The size of the lid that fits into the jar is 3 1/4 inches. I have yet to find any similar to mine. Any suggestions?

I think this is the seal on the second photo and I do not find seals that you can use on your lids to replace them. If this is the case I would go to a local hobby shop or even a Home Depot and check out rubber or even soft plastic that comes in rolls that you can easily cut and put on the lids so they will seal again. The plastic looks like you could easily find another type of plastic that you could use in place of this one that would work just fine around the lip of the wooden lid to seal your jars again.

I do know a lot of gas lids have a plastic piece that fits inside of jars to seal them. You can even try to find these types of lids and remove the plastic to fit on the wooden lid you have.

Check out Amazon they have a lot of different silicon deals that would work for you. www.amazon.com/.../s?k=silicone+jar+seals (Affiliate Link)

I see some here but they come with the lids www.alibaba.com/.../jar-wooden-lid-seals.html

Since it appears the seal part comes off easily, to make them fit tight again, try removing the seals, add a bead of silicone caulk between the seal and the wood lid, and let cure -OFF the canisters. You will have to estimate just how much caulk to put between seal and wood, to hold it out enough for the ridged seal to seal tight again...DON"T add too much or you may not get the lid back on !!!

OR you could try just putting a heavy bead of silicone caulk around the wood lid where the seal goes, and smooth it out a bit with your finger or the back of a plastic spoon to try making your own seal. Just remember to let it cure OFF the canister, or you might never get the lid off again. Good luck and report back any solution you find.

By the way, if you've never used silicone caulk before, it stinks strongly of vinegar when fresh, but the smell goes away fast when it cures.
