My lid is stuck - help!

The wooden lids on Hornsea storage jars are not all exactly the same size, so new seals can sometimes be quite tight at first. If your lids become tight when you fit the new seals, don't try and pull the lid off - twist it instead. It will come off. You may need to do this for a few days until your seal 'beds in'.

If you find your lids pop out when you put them in, then try weighing them down with something heavy and after a day or so, they should stay put.
