I got the click clack 201002 model (.7qt .7L) and it is really loose not providing an airtight seal at bed bath and beyond, which one do I need?

I too just got the ClickClack lid but I bought mine at The Container Store. I noticed that they had two different ones with model number 2010: white and grey. I bought the grey since I felt that it would match better color-wise. When I got home I also thought that it fit a bit loose. But, after taking my hopper into the store it seems that the white one fit a little looser (maybe it was some variance from unit to unit?). I ended up keeping the grey lid.

Now that I've tried it a little it seems that if it fit any tighter it may not have the ease of movement to allow us to slide it down to push out the grounds.

If yours is so loose that it won't push out the bulk of the residual grounds then maybe try taking your hopper off and taking it to the store with you to check the size.

Good luck!
Larry.

Over the years there have been many posts indicating that there are slight size differences with the C-C lids.  When I had Rocky I bought one and got lucky --- correct size.  Nice snug (but not too snug) fit.  It did a great job clearing out the grinds.  

One more benefit -- it reduced the noise with the grinder was running.

It might have been mentioned much earlier in this thread but my experience with a new lid is that after a few days the lid seems to expand a bit once it is out of the original jar and into a slight larger Rocky hopper. So if it is a bit loose to start with it might snug up a bit. Mine works like a charm now.

My only complaint is that it is a bit hard to clean because if you rinse it under the tap you end up with a bit of water inside that doesn't drain out easily.

I also bought the .7Qt one from Bed, Bath and Beyond and even after the lid has been off the container for over a week, it is still waaaay too lose for my Rocky.  I believe they've made the container size smaller now.  Since somebody used duct tape to increase the size, I also did the same - I wrapped two layers of duct tape and it fits snug now.   It works quite well for the most part even though it still doesn't get everything out.

I just bought my clickclack last night. I got it for 7 bucks at target. I bought the .6 qt size, but it seems to not fit tightly. Maybe a .7 qt size would work better?

This is funny as it is the exact same discussion that occurred a year or two ago when people discovered the Click clack.

I think mine is the .6 lid. I know I got it from L&T and it is kind of loose but it still does the job.  I don't know if you guys are actually using the pumpy thing but I am not.  I simply lift the lid (while the grind is finishing up in the hopper) to the point where it almost clears the top of the hopper and then push it down firmly.  I repeat this after I release the button and the burrs whir down.

It does not clear every morsel but it does blow out enough where I don't feel like I'm wasting coffee and I'm not contaminating the next shot.

Good enough for me.
