Default Novatwist Plastic Screw Caps For Wine Bottles.

The subject of reusing metal screw top wine bottles has been discussed many times in the forum, some members have posted that the cap threads eventually wear and the caps do not seal properly, Novatwist Plastic Screw Caps are a cheap reusable alternative.

On sale here (these may not be the cheapest) - http://www.balliihoo.co.uk/novatwist...12-p-1112.html

He says the white disc inside the cap crushes as you tighten the cap and may not be airtight after several uses, he might be right but i have used mine many times over and they are all still airtight.

I've been looking for a deal on these, does anyone know of a cheaper supplier?

I found 12 x Novatwist for £1.92 or16p each but with cheapest delivery option (£3.20 2nd class) it dramatically increases the price to £5.12 or 42p each.

If you buy 120 its still 16p each but the price with cheapest delivery option is then
£22.90 or just over 19p each.

Why not see if any forum members would buy half off you on the 120 offer, you could copy this post to limited offers in market place and add your offer.

I don't mind the cost as I'm hoping they will be a present anyway as my B/day and xmas are both coming up, I was just wondering if anyone knows of a cheaper deal before I order.

I found out that "Love to Brew" do them cheaper on ebay than from their own website,

£18.30 or just over 20p each if you buy a 90 pack (20.33p to be exact)
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281848595592


£13.20 or 22p each if you buy a 60 pack
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/281860503736

£7.80 or 26p each if you buy a pack of 30
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272045649436


And interestingly if you buy 120 from them on ebay it costs more than their website by about £3

I bought 30 of these to try out and used the first ones yesterday, it's one handed job and they are so easy to use compared to corking, I'm impressed so far, the only thing is the gold colour is a bit more brown than gold but they still look ok

I've been using these for a while and would like to say check your bottles to make sure they are actually screw top and try an old screw top lid to make sure the thread is good.

I've had two failures, one I mistakenly fitted to a cork bottle with no screw thread and it just went round and round and leaked when tilted so I had to take it off.

The second would tighten and then slip, when I removed it I found the glass screw thread had a chip out of it.

But I do like them and I'm slowly moving over to them for my own use, but I'm still doing corks n shrink tops for giveaways
