Fatal design/manufacturing flaw
The lid is paper thin almost exactly at the place where most pressure would be - at the curve of the bend. I did not even use it and it cracked first time I was putting it on. I did not over tighten it even. See attached picture as to where it cracked. If this design flaw is not fixed - I do not think Fermonster is a viable product. (not counting issues with getting the O-ring to stay/snap).

Lids cracking all the time
I love the fermonster but the lids keep cracking, so I have to keep ordering replacements. I'm on my 4th replacement now. I'm not overtightening. Fermonster is a great fermenter but the lids suck. Sounds like I'm not the only one having this issue.

O-ring falls out
The accompanying o-ring doesn’t fit securely inside the lid. Was able to get it to stay in there with a little keg lube, but wouldn’t stay in otherwise.

Lid cracking
I recently fermented a 10 gal batch of ipa when I noticed there was no action from my blowoff tube despite active fermentation. Upon closer inspection I discovered the lids were cracked where they met the screw top of the fermonster. I don't know what caused this wether i have been tightening them to much( hand tight) or they are defective. Had to replace 4 lids

First lid got a crack right over where the threads and gasket are so this is a replacement. Ordered an extra just in case my other one cracked and sure enough pulled it out this weekend and it was cracked in similiar fashion and spot so good thing I ordered two.

These lids do seem thicker also then the originals I had so hopefully they hold up better.

Don’t tighten too much as the lid will crack snug is all that’s needed to seal

Widemouth is great for cleaning
I bought two Fermonsters and after about 15 batches, one of the lids cracked and is now unusable. It loses one star for that.
As far as folks having issues with the rubber stopper not staying put, you need to dry the stopper and the opening of the lid. If those are both clean and dry, the stopper sticks very well.
The o-ring is another issue for some folks, but I just leave mine in place. I always soak the lid in sanitizer before using, and I just leave that o-ring in place. Even after kegging a batch, I remove the lid, keep the o-ring in place, rinse it off well with warm/hot soapy water, then soak it in sanitizer (since I already have a batch mixed up if I'm kegging), then air dry and store it.
It's a pretty good lid, just wish mine hadn't cracked.

Hope this helps
For those having issues try the buon vino stoppers much better than others never had any problems with those
