What is the reCAP Flip Cap?

A Regular Mouth Mason jar cap with a “flip” lid that opens up to a LARGE 2” opening!  Perfect for snatching homemade pickles, spooning out jams and jellies, or scooping up your favorite snack or Mason jar meal.  The cap includes two removable attachments. A screen turns the jar into a shaker for grated cheese, herbs, flour, and more.  The counter ring helps keep track of water intake or can be used to date pantry items. 

Great for Baking!

Flip Cap Details

  • BPA-Free & FDA-Approved Plastic
  • Made in America (right in our hometown of Erie, Pennsylvania)
  • Multi-Functional:  Flip it. Scoop it. Shake it. Count it. 

Since launching reCAP right here on Kickstarter, we’ve received hundreds of product suggestions and heard numerous uses for Mason jars – that’s how we developed this newest product, with our fans and customers in mind.  This is a prototype - and we need YOUR help to bring it to life!

We’re amazed at how many people around the world love Mason jars! Here are a few of our friends that really capture the essence of why Mason jars are not only very popular, but so incredibly versatile and multi-functional…for everyone!

Erica has been tending to chickens and hatching her own creations since way before the urban homesteader movement took off. Alongside her blue-ribbon winning chicken, Meryl Peep, she enjoys micro-farming and finding the freshest ingredients at local markets.  Whether making bread, fermenting veggies, or canning her latest batch of jam, Erica uses Mason jars every day of the year.

Gaia is ‘one’ with the Earth, and she knows that making small choices can have a big impact on our planet.  This nature goddess reuses and re-purposes Mason jars so that she can fall asleep peacefully knowing that her actions make a difference – whether as an on-the-go water bottle to eliminate plastic waste or as a way to minimize packaging and store bulk foods like grains and rice.

J.D. has a passion for the nostalgic, from mixing up classic cocktails like the Sazerac in his exposed brick apartment, to finding vintage treasures at the local open market.  His personal style and his choice in glassware are a harmonious mix of old meets new, which is why Mason jars are ideal for storing perishable bar items, dispensing simple syrup, and straining muddled herbs in spirited concoctions.

For this minimalist, less isn’t more, but better.  Prue's apartment, style, and existence are based on simplicity.  Her daily routines may seem superfluously neurotic to most, but Prue swears by her very small collection of Mason jars that organize and efficiently store her everyday needs like cotton balls and cotton swabs.

A grandmother with a mission, Gert doesn’t pinch cheeks, but rather, pennies…and lots of them.   To say that she ‘buys in bulk’ is an exaggerated understatement – if it’s on sale, she’s ready with Mason jars to fill and store in her cupboard.  Her fat cat, Lola Coupon, typically joins her at garage sales, flea markets, and blue light specials.  An avid extreme couponer, Gert knows how to stretch a dime to the max.

Risks and challenges

We've gained a world of experience with the first successful Kickstarter campaign that launched our company. For three years we have been developing relationships with designers, engineers, molders, printers and fulfillment professionals! With a detailed project plan, deliverables and dates; we built in time needed for tweaks and potential re-do's.

We have a second complimentary Kickstarter campaign going on at the same time. http://kck.st/1pwPGyr The timeline is the same and our team is excited to bring both to life!
