70mm Spare Safety Button Glass Jar Lids

These twist off replacement safety button jam jar lids measure 70mm and are available in Retail and Wholesale packs. They are vinegar-proof, FSA approved, BPA free and suitable for home preserving or commercial use.


  • These twist lids are vinegar and acidic proof making them suitable for pickling and preserves such as chutney as well as jam, marmalade and relish.

  • Use with hot produce, when heat sealed the safety button is pulled down to show the seal has been made. 
  • The twist closure creates a vacuum seal which is airtight and liquid tight. Preventing leaks and prolonging shelf life.

  • An environmentally friendly way to reuse glass jars.

  • Seals with a 1/4 of a turn.

  • To find the correct lid for your jar simply measure across the neck of the glass jar. Read our handy blog article for help.


Helpful hand application tips

These lids can be applied by machine but they can also be hand applied. Please follow these care tips for successful application. For more in-depth information please read our blog post on lids.


  • Take care not to over tighten, a quarter of a turn will seal the lid.
  • Check the lid is not cross threaded.

  • Warmed lids work best, they can be heated to a maximum of 60°C

  • Apply the cap finger tight and then apply pressure for 1/4 of a turn. 

  • Place the hot jam or produce in the jar, as it cools the contracting air sucks down the 'button' and provided the button stays down, you can be sure the seal is effective.

  • When filling the jar leave approximately 10mm (5%) space from the rim in order to create the best vacuum and seal.

    I had been given some jars by a friend and needed a larger size than I usually use. The handy guide to measuring the lid made it easy to identify the size I needed. I will order more lids when jam making season comes around.

    Perfect for what I needed them for. I like to recycle jars but with new lids. Glad I’ve found somewhere to buy my spare lids.
