Wick Stickums (large)
Fast, affordable, and highly heat resistant, our wick stickums are the perfect way to secure your wicks.
The large size is perfect for our 3" and 6" wicks.
Peel the tab from the paper and apply to the bottom of your wick assembly. Peel off the paper tab and press firmly to a clean dry surface.
Use Wick Stickums along with the EZ Wick Setter for perfectly centered and secure wicks.

While semi-convenient (you do need to turn your oven on or set these next to the stove to get the adhesive to stick), I personally don't like them too much and do not use them for what I'm making anymore. They raise the height of the tab and in some jars this doesn't work and or leaves way too much wax left over (tureen, jelly, and tealight). I tried these in status jars and it was acceptable, however I'm now finding they are kind of a pain to get off if you recycle jars for personal use... I am soaking what I couldn't get off by hand in 91% alcohol and hopefully it will loosen it enough to get off. The only time that I think I would use these is if I were in a power outage situation and couldn't use my hot glue. While it's messier it's a lot easier in my opinion, and it works just fine with the wick setter. Plus, with hot glue it's easier to re-center if you need to where as these guys do not move. Pros and cons. But I recommend skipping the stickums and going straight to a glue gun. (Also I find it takes around the same amount of time for glue vs. stickum. If anything the glue goes a little faster for me.)

I heat my jars in the oven during the cooler to cold weather and get great adhesion with the stickums..never a problem..best be sure you put the wick where you want it because it is there to stay....Thank you Candlescience!

These work really well and make life easier. Much quicker and less mess than hot glue. I was a little worried they would stick well enough, but I find I can pull my wicks tight even after pouring wax and they stay in place.

I would recommend using these to put your wick in your glass jar before you start weighing the wax and making your candles, and then put on the wick bar or popsicle stick right before you pour. Otherwise, the stickum will start to peel off the bottom of the jar when lightly pulled at all.
