Default Humidor seal

I'm pretty sure my humidor seals ok. I've done the flashlight test - pass

I've done the dollar bill test - pass (i think?) - THe bill comes out on one side a little easier than others, but still requires some tugging.

What can i do to ensure the seal is effective, what sort of modifications can i make to my humidor?

to test it.. tape wrap anywhere possible it could leak..i suggest using blue painters tape... i used scotch tape though... didn't hurt the finish.. but i was super careful




if its small enough you can do the trashbag test...

Note - if theres no glass on your humi you will need ot be quick with your "looking to see" skills!

Take some masking tape and put a thin strip around the outside lip of the sides and top fold over the tape that hangs over the cedar. Shut the humi and see if its tight when you shut it and is tight to open. Add more tape if necessary to ensure a tight seal.
