Mine literally just sits on top. Looking at the thickness of the bucket lid compared to the slot in the lid I don't think it would go on without breaking. My guess is its not supposed to seal. My bottling bucket has a thinner seal that looks like it would fit better. I am going to trust the CO2 blanket and go with a loose lid. I figure any blowover that might occur would be less explosive that way.
