Perfect Stoppers for very old porcelain salt & pepper shakers
I inherited 6 very old (1932) porcelain salt & pepper shakers. The original stoppers were either missing or so dehydrated that they could no longer be removed and reinserted. I ordered these from WidgetCo because I've ordered other small parts from you before. The corks came promptly and the shipping cost was fair. These fit perfectly, although for this purpose, I needed to slice about 1/4" off the wide end of each cork. I saved the ordering information in the box with the shakers so that when I pass them on, the next owner will know where to get replacement corks!

No. 2 corks
So glad I found Widget Co. Ordering was easy, delivery fast, just perfect! I look for potentially excellent smaller companies for on-line ordering, rather than use the big "A" behemoth. Will order from Widget Co. again.

Just What I Needed
Through Google search, I found the small cork stoppers I needed to replace old/missing ones from some very old salt and pepper shakers. They worked perfectly!
The website was easy to sort through and it was easy to find the type and size of cork necessary. Shipping was immediate and they arrived quickly.
Janet T, Maine - 12/1/2020
I made a small order as I only needed to replace a few corks and what I received was exactly right. I would be happy to buy from WidgetCo again whenever the need should arise.

Suitable for Poppers
I recently bought a number of same-sized stopper corks of each grade to assess ONLY their suitability for making fishing poppers. I bought sizes 00, 1, 2, and 4 in all grades. Size 0 Extra Select were out of stock so I only had Premium and Standard. In size 3, I only purchased Extra Select corks so I could compare them to the 150+ size 3 extremely high quality corks I already own. Rather than write a review under each size and grade, I will give a general review of the three grades across all the corks I ordered (105 in total) and post the exact same review under each size and grade. First off, the photos of each grade provided on the website are very accurate. By viewing them, you should have a good idea of what the pits and longer lenticels look like.
In order to make my own assessment across grades as regards their suitability for use as poppers, I devised a five-point rating system based on how much, if any, filling of the pits are required to before painting. A rating of 5 means no filling was needed when applying between one and three coats of mid-quality paint (i.e., the paint typically filled any pits, sometimes completely, sometimes so that only dimples showed.) By mid-quality paint, I mean something on the order of Behr Premium Plus Ultra interior/exterior paint (I used Medium Yellow in my test). A rating of 4 signified that three coats did not cover the defects without minor filling of a cork filling product, but the finished product still looked good without filling. A rating of three signified that some filling was required for the finished product to look good. A rating of 2 signified that the cork had defects that required significant filling before painting. Finally, a rating of 1 indicated a cork that was unsatisfactory due to a defect near one end of the cork that could only be fixed by cutting the cork to form a flat base.
The results of my assessment follow: 80% of the Extra Select corks were rated as quality 5 and 20% as quality 4. For the Premium corks, 15% were quality 5, 60% were quality 4, and 25% were quality 3. For the Standard corks, 15% were quality 5, 30% were quality 4, 45% were quality 3, and 10% were quality 1 (in these cases needing to be cut to form a flat base). If you tie commercially, choose Extra Select to minimize your filling work. For my personal use, I’d use all grades, and I would not fill any corks in quality levels 3-5 (I had no quality level 2 corks, so I can’t speak about them). I used to spend the necessary time to produce commercial-quality cork poppers, but in 60 years of fishing poppers, I found the fish do not care whether there are pits or not!
Service is excellent; shipping is fast.

Clarifying My Ratings
To clarify my star ratings in my recent reviews as regards the suitability of the three grades of stoppers for making fishing poppers: the Standard grade—which I rated with 3 stars—are suitable for poppers; the Premium grade—which I rated with 4 stars—as a group make very good poppers; the Extra Select grade—which I rated with 5 stars—as a group make excellent poppers.
Bob P, Wisconsin - 7/26/2020
Love this company's service!
My order was small, but they treated it with efficiency and respect. It was delivered quickly and I will always shop with them.

Timely order & shipping. Custom quantities was super convenient. Pricing was as good as anywhere.
Aaron M, Duluth, MN - 4/5/2020
Corks are sturdy but to small for my project.
Carmen C, California - 3/29/2020
Not a prick on my fingers
I purchased #2 stoppers to place on my Musky Lure hooks. These hooks are very sharp so I placed the stoppers on the hooks so when I grab one I don't hook myself.

Old salt & pepper shaker corks
We run a business selling old china, and as often as not the old corks or rubber stoppers in the salt and pepper shakers are either dried up and useless or long gone. Ordering a few sizes was the answer to getting all the various replacements I needed -- I told my husband I was in my glory going through the inventory and fixing this problem with your corks! Thank you WidgetCo!
Laura N., Connecticut - 12/21/2019
#2 corks are exactly what I needed in my craft business and better than what I could by at the store and a higher quality and the customer support was awesome

Pain free and simple order and delivery
I couldn't believe how easy it was to find stoppers, that we needed for our antique salt and pepper shakers. I took one measurement and estimated what we needed and the process couldn't have been easier. They are nice folks to deal with.
Kenneth J. S., Ohio - 11/19/2018

What I Expected
I bought one of these to help me stop picking at my feet. I try to reach for the cork when I get the urge. I recommend corks to anyone suffering from excoriation disorder.
Alex S., Wisconsin - 10/2/2017
Just what I needed!

Always great quality and fit the vase I need them for! Love them!
Mata D, USA - 4/5/2017
Size 2 cork stoppers
Corks are too small for my shakers.
[From WIDGETCO: It's best to measure the opening diameter, and choose the cork with the largest bottom diameter you can find, that is smaller than your opening diameter.]
David A., California - 1/18/2017
I bought from WIDGETCO because of great reviews posted online.
Very easy to locate the product I needed and make the purchase. I will
buy again if the need arises. Very good company.

These were part of my second order. They are just right for the jars I have with lost or bad lids.
Torhalla T, Salt Lake Valley, UT - 4/13/2016
I like the fact that these are quality corks. I also appreciated the multitude of sizes, some which are hard to find locally. That took all of the guess work out of my purchase. They were well packaged and arrived promptly. They work perfectly in the cribbage boards!
Ken D, Marinette, WI - 2/27/2016
Excellent! Thank you!
N.K., California - 12/15/2015
I was happy with corks , but had to go to post office to pay 2.22 for postage due. Not enough postage on package!
[From WIDGETCO: We will look into this and see what went wrong and pay you back. Sorry for any confusion.]

I had misplaced my corks and have searched repeatedly to no avail. Then I found your site. They are great and I have now placed an order for another size - also misplaced.

Tena Y., Hernando, MS - 10/20/2014
Everything was as promised. What I ordered was not the correct size, but that was my error. However, the corks I did order will work for future projects. I will definitely be back. Thanks!
Kristi S., Kuna, ID - 9/13/2014

Hamilton W, Barbados - 8/18/2014
Exactly what I wanted
I was unable to purchase the size corks I wanted in retail outlets. Went looking online, found WIDGETCO and there they were. I ordered Tuesday and had them by Friday. I am very happy with my purchase and with this company. I will look to them again in the future. Thank you!!!!
Terri G., California - 5/28/2014

S.S., Oregon - 4/7/2014
These came quickly, the quality is nice and all are uniform. We are going to use them in the High School ceramics class I teach as stoppers for salt and pepper shakers. Thanks for making this type of thing available.
A C, Concord, NC - 3/28/2014
Size 2 cork
Excellent product, and service!!
Nancy B, Pennsylvania - 10/5/2013
Great product, fast shipping!
My boss (and Pastor), at the 11th hour, had a great idea to pass corks out to our congregation of 500 + to illustrate rising to the surface after being knocked down using a cork in a water bottle. He wanted the cork stoppers for barrels, not the kind for wine bottles, so he asked me to find some the day before he would need them. WidgetCo helped me get SATURDAY shipping of 550 corks! They were THE perfect size and of great quality, and I commend the customer service I received. The object lesson hit home too! Thanks so much!
Sue Bradley, Plantsville, CT - 9/21/2013
#2 Cork Stoppers work great
I bought these to plug carpenter bee holes after using a spray to kill the bees. They are perfect for this use.
George C., Ormond Beach, FL - 5/26/2013
When compared to the corks I was getting at the craft store, these "standard" quality corks are far superior. An excellent buy and super fast shipping too :D
Trevor S, Oregon - 3/15/2013
Great service & product
These fit the bill exactly and were delivered very quickly. I will buy again when I need more.
