I have only one I dont remember where I got it.. Would like to have more.. whole lot more. I would not use them in processing the canning jars just put on when removing the metal bands for storage....
I already have the plastic lids by Ball for storage.
I have been using only glass for storage in fridge for years....
Used my canning jars for several years after I stopped making jams...
Just this year started seriously canning
I dont trust tupperware etc.....
Back to my relish making. LOL
Thanks all

RE: who made or makes plastic screw bands?

The only plastic screw bands I have are decorative, meant for doing counted cross stitch and then placing that inside the bands. Perhaps that is what you have. Try the craft stores.

Plus storing with bands on isn't a good idea, plastic or not. Storage with bands removed is always recommended.

If you are going to use the plastic ones you might just as well leave the metal ones on.
