Fits my PET carboys that have a 42mm opening perfect, pushes about half way in to make nice snug seal.

stopper are to large should have incremental size not small medium large
I have picked up in the past large stoppers thinking these were right .your mediums I expected to be proper size there are large and if you treat should give a dimension

works great
Best option for a better bottle. If you go with the one piece airlock snip off the bottom of it so it doesn't get plugged up with krausen gunk. Fits perfect, and I don't really know how you would have a problem with it. Sure it will pop out but should you have been using a blowoff tube with your wyeast 3068, yes. Everyone knows better bottles flex so don't be an inept fool, and it will work great. Products work well if you use them as they should. Cars don't work to well on the left side of the road, better bottle bungs don't work well if you don't think.

works great for me
I'm not sure what the exact problems other people are having, but I used these on all my better bottles and they make such a better seal than anything else.

My plastic carboys have almost the same size opening as the bottom diameter of these stoppers, 1.68", are they flexible enough to fit well?? Thanks!

BEST ANSWER: Yes, I use it on a 5 gallon water jug. It fits just fine.
Will this fit the 1000 ml Erlenmeyer flask since the site doesn't offer the recommended no 8.5 stopper?
A shopper on Jun 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The small universal stopper is the item that will fit in our 1000 mL Erlenmeyers.
