We are always getting asked how to measure jam jar lids and which size lid does a jam jar take. It's very common for you to have some previously used jars that you'd like buy some new lids for and most of the time we will have a lid to suit. However, some large food producers may have jars and lids produced to a non-stanadrd size and type and in these cases our range of lids will not fit.
The trade terminology for the regular twist-off jar lid represents a size in millimeters; so an 063 is also referred to as 63mm. And what does 63mm relate to we hear you say. It is the dimension that is just slightly larger than the thread diameter of the jar.
The standard range of jar lid sizes that we have available are: 38, 43, 48, 53, 58, 63, 66, 70 & 82
We really don't want you to buy the wrong size lids as it frustrates you and the returns cost us money. We have a growing pile of returned lids becasue customers have guessed, or taken a punt at buying a few differemt sizes hoping some may fit their jars. For hygiene/contamination reasons we do not put opened packs of lids back into stock.
We provide the below sizing information to help you buy the right size lids. We also have available a sample pack of lids to buy so you can try them on your jars so you know which size fits
