Frequently Asked Questions
Removing the wire-bails from your lid and Pickl-It container, which preserves their shine – easily damaged by harsh dishwasher or dish soap – may cause them to become stretched out, fitting a bit too loosely. They’re easy to tighten!
Simply remove the wire-bail bands from the container neck or lid. Then, just like an adjustable ring, the lid’s “loops” or the container’s “hooks” may be “pinched” together.
If “pinching” doesn’t sufficiently tighten them, pull them across each other, just like in the photo on the right, reforming a tighter circle.
If you’re unfamiliar with how to detach or attach the wire-bail 2-part assembly, see this faq for instruction.
