Subsequent to the company moving from
Colorado back to its original location in Michigan, the toll free
number on all boxes is no longer the number to reach S&S
Innovations /Tattler Reusable canning lids. The new number is, as
appears on our web site and all new packaging, 231-349-2325 or
231-832-4401. Thank you for your continued patronage.
Lids do require a bit of variation from conventional metal lids. Being a
two piece combination with a rubber gasket ring Tattler lids must
remain a bit loose during processing in order for the vessel to vent
pressure building during processing. An online customer gave us a tip
that is as good, or better, than anything we offered. To get a “feel”
for the correct tightness prior to processing, place the jar on a
counter top, or other smooth surface, place your index finger on the
lid, not too much pressure, while tightening the metal band. Screw the
metal band on until the jar begins to spin on the counter top. This is
perfect for processing. Once the process is completed and the jars are
removed from the pressure cooker etc., place a towel over the still hot
jar, for safety, and finish tightening the metal band. Now just let the
jar cool naturally, when cool remove the metal band and lift the jar
slightly by the lid. It should be well sealed.
