I saw the same on amazon for $4. I wonder if its the same quality or just a cheap look-a-like.

I use a wood screw, but have also used a cork screw once. Unless the gasket was in situ for decades they are fairly easy to remove IME, silicone is even easier to remove.

Get a CafeLat silicone gasket. It's a one time purchase and light years better than lubing a hard rubber gasket.
