What FG are you expecting?
1.050 -> 1.026 in how many days? It may still be fermenting. Just because there are no airlock bubbles doesn't mean there is no fermentation. (There are numerous threads on HBT that (re-)emphasize this.) A tighter lid or a better bottle won't change whether you are getting fermentation.
