‘I found it tricky at first. You just need to put on one end and slide your thumbs with pressure to the other end instead of trying to put on by pushing the whole thing down,’
Did you try soaking the lid in hot water then putting it on hot? Allow to cool completely then hopefully the lid will fit properly,’
‘Have you tried soaking the kid in boiling water for about five minutes then dry and try?’
