Size #4 Corks Stoppers are tapered Cork Stoppers that will plug bottles, lab vials. etc. Made from 100% natural cork. Size #4 Corks Stoppers are manufactured to exacting standards to provide a secure fit every time.
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.

Great product, excellent price, and super-fast shipping - what more can you ask for?
Website is easy to navigate and I found exactly what I was looking for. Product was delivered very quickly and is excellent quality. Very satisfied customer. Thank you.
Jeff N., Connecticut - 6/15/2020
The service I received from this company was incredible! I had such an insignificant order that I was almost ashamed to place it. Not only did this company replace my incorrect first order (which was an error on my part) but I received the replacement order very quickly. The response I received to my inquiry about the first order was most kind and polite. I wish I had a large business for which I could place huge orders with this company. Since I don't have that option, and needed only to keep my salt and pepper shakers stoppered, I can only say "thank you:" and urge businesses to utilize "Widgets".

Nothing to complain about. Fast processing

Stuffing pvc pipes
I needed to add weight to a structure I made out of 1/2" pvc pipes. I used 75 lbs. of play sand and stuffed both ends of those pipes closest to the ground. The #4 cork stoppers worked well to keep the sand from spilling out, so I ordered another gross when I expanded the project.
Both deliveries arrived earlier than estimated and all were accounted for.
Dave K., Brentwood, NY - 10/26/2019
Review of purchase
Very happy with quality and the quickness of your shipping and delivery sooner than expected.
Chris B, Pennsylvania - 10/12/2019
Size 3 and 4 corks
I needed these to fit the bottoms of my 1930's salt and pepper shakers. Home builder and craft stores go from a size 2 to 6. Ugh. These are perfect and I am cookin' again. Thank God for you.
Char R, Michigan - 8/13/2019
Hard to find size
Looked all over for the right size for some fun bottles found at an antique store.
These guys gave such good measurements I had no problem with ordering.
Arrived a day early and fit perfectly!
Happy camper here
Man P, Texas - 8/2/2019
Found the right sized cork
Had trouble finding replacement corks for a twisted glass oil and vinegar dispenser. Shopped at 3 local stores with no luck and then found the WidgetCo website. 5 days later our salads and marriage were saved.

Great product for our line of product use. We were purchasing out of states and orders were taking too long to arrive. I went on google to find we had a vendor here in Texas. Shipment and description were exactly as advertised on website...Thanks!

Kathy W., Butlerville, IN - 10/28/2017
We love WidgetCo!
We ordered these corks for our new company. The service was fantastic. We will certainly get all of our corks in the future from WIDGETCO!
Vickie G., Santa Maria, CA - 10/2/2017
This is one organized business!
These were part of a wide selection of corks I ordered to replace missing corks in an accumulation of vintage shakers. I liked the precise measurements and found ordering easy. They were on their way to Canada within hours and I received them with no difficulty. I haven't started the job of fitting corks to shakers, but the corks are just what I was looking for. Well done, WIDGETCO.
Diane M., Calgary, Alberta, Canada - 1/10/2017
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 which 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
These are great. Top notch corks and service.
Gerry B, London, England - 10/27/2015

Christi Y., Bloomington, IN - 10/12/2015
I will definitely order from here again. I like the fact that these are quality food grade corks. I also appreciated the sizing advice which took all of the guess work out of my purchase. I wish I would have shopped here first! I wasted a lot of time and money before placing this order.
Lettie L, USA - 8/5/2015
Great quality and very timely shipping! Wouldn't change a thing!
Nicole L, Kansas City - 5/17/2015
Quality Corks & Very Timely Shipping
Corks arrived as described ahead of time expected. Neatly packaged. All uniform size to spec. Sturdy and pliable. Ordered two sizes which were the perfect range needed for a non-uniform bottle collection. All bottles now have a perfect fit cork now. Bottle content securely contained. Would consider this the go-to cork supplier for future needs.
Donna P, Madison, Wisconsin - 4/29/2015
Great Product & Excellent Service
These corks give my message in a bottle invitations the perfect finish, and they always arrive in record time! Keep up the great service :)

I'm a moron
Bought the wrong size again.
Denis E., Salem, MI - 11/12/2014
These fit my vintage salt, pepper, sugar and flour shakers just perfect. I looked at local stores, craft shops, hardware stores, etc and no one had these available. Everyone sold corks for wine bottles.....not what I needed. Lightning fast shipping!
Sheri S., York, PA - 10/17/2014
I ordered these for message in a bottle favors for my babyshower and they are nicely made and a perfect fit for a bottle with a half inch diameter. Shipping was extremely fast I received them ahead of time.
Michele B, New Jersey - 8/4/2014
This company has great customer service and great products. I didn't know what size cork I needed so I emailed the company and within an hour I had my response. I ordered that size and it came within just a couple days and they fit perfectly! Thank you so much WIDGETCO!!!

Ordered some small corks for my daughters wedding. They arrived very quickly and are great! Thanks WidgetCo for a great product and super customer service!
Susan C, Virginia - 11/27/2013
I measured corks I had at home, then ordered according to the size listed on the website. The ones you sent were not the same size as listed! Too small!
[Reply from WIDGETCO: Sorry to hear this. We can look into this for you. We do pride ourselves on shipping accurately depicted products so something must have gone wrong.]
Paul N, Wisconsin - 11/13/2013
Ordered in the morning and they'd shipped everything by the afternoon! Wow!! Corks were the perfect size. A very satisfactory experience.

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
