This stopper is preferred by more professional artists and it is the most efficient stainless stopper on the market. It fits Wine (cork and screw top), Balsamic vinegar, oil (see photo) and almost all screw top liquor bottles. With a little twist as you’re pushing it in the bottle, it creates a beautiful friction fit. As you can see in the picture 2 of the 4 o-rings make contact with the inside of the bottle to form a tighter seal. With a tapered stopper only 1 o-ring will make contact inside of the bottle.
This stopper stands so your artwork can be displayed when it is not in a bottle. It is heavier and more balanced with larger wood tops. This style is also available in brass, BR-9000.
Used with wood, pottery, polymer clay, ceramics, antique door knobs and golf balls.
The 3/8″ x 16 tpi threaded stud is 1/2″ high with superior threading and machined as one piece.
Top diameter of the stopper is 13/16″ and is 1 1/4″ tall (less the threaded stud).

Kevin Jesequel –
Hi quality and great people to work with! Niles Bottle Stoppers have helped me add items to my show booth at a lower price point than my vessels without compromising quality. Thanks!
Todd DeLong –
These are by far the best quality stoppers I used. I like the thick gasket rings, they really hold a tight seal.
Ronnie Jones –
I am very impressed with the Niles products I received my order in 3 days everything was pack very well the stoppers are the best I have ever used
Daniel Healy –
I just received my order for 10 S9000 stoppers and could not be more pleased. They were packaged with a great deal of care and pride. If I did not know better I would say the packing tape was applied with a laser! I knew even before I opened the package that I would not be disappointed. The quality is second to none. When I placed the order I made a mistake with the mandrel I wanted. I emailed Carl and he got back to right away and made the change.
I love dealing with small companies! There is no doubt that I will placing more orders in the near future. Thank you Carl and Robin for your great customer service and high quality parts made in the USA.
Terry Kokinda, KY –
Your bottle stoppers with threaded inserts make a clean product from my level of turner. I couldn’t be happier with the product.
I also bought a tap wrench but haven’t been able to master the use of it. This has just reinforced my purchase and use of the threaded inserts.
The mandrel I purchased just makes the process work easier for me.
Keith Knisley –
In comparison to other SS stoppers I have tried, yours (SS-9000) have a much better seal and ease of fit. O-rings are more substantial than others and provide a more confident fit.
Jim Wharrey, PA –
I was extremely impressed with the quality of the stainless steel bottle stoppers I had received. Not only the precision and clean machine work, the fit and function of the o-ring design. I have used others in the past and they never fit very well in various bottles. Knowing that they are 304 stainless also is comforting when you give them as gifts. I enjoy making them and want to try some of your other products soon.
Tony Blanco –
I discovered Niles Bottle Stoppers after being very unhappy with a bottle stopper I bought from a local woodworking supply store. That one was an ugly silicone that fit poorly and severely detracted from the work I put into turning the top portion. Enter these stainless steel stoppers. They’re gorgeous, they fit bottles better and come in many different shapes, plus they stand on their own. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase and they cost less than the ugly one I started with! This is a win-win especially when paired with the most amazing customer service I’ve ever experienced from any company EVER. You cant go wrong with any of these stoppers.
Rick Cook, Iniana –
Love your product! It inspires me to do better on my lathe. Will be ordering more soon as I have used up what I bought. Gave all away as gifts to friends and family. They all love it.
Bret C / Neodesha, KS –
“The wine stopper we purchased from Niles is Top Notch! The quality of the stainless steel and the rubber rings made the stopper look and feel GREAT!”
Bruce Stilwell –
I think your product is great. I like that standing up shows my turning better and the FDA stainless steel helps sell them. Please keep up the great work
Dave Walker, WA –
I found Ruth’s website after reviewing online comments about various bottle stoppers and turning projects. Her stoppers are quality products. It is nice to have a good source for stoppers with 4 o-rings. Shipping is fast and reliable.
Sean Murray –
Awesome, high-quality product and great customer service. Shipping is always quick and items are well-packaged.
Richard H –
Very satisfied with these stoppers, will be placing my third order fairly soon,
Galen Tuma –
Everything is great. Ordering is painless, packaging is very good, shipping is even better than timely. Product always arrives quickly and in excellent shape. Just open the box and get to work making bottle stoppers. Quality of your products is top drawer. I am quite new to turning but glad someone put me on the trail to buying products from you. Always helpful and keeping prices low with timely sales, showing concern for your customers. Hopefully you and your products will be around for a long time.
Jim Baustian –
Your stoppers are the key to a new stopper concept — the compact shape of the 9000-series combined with the excellent quality and functionality of both the stoppers and threaded bushings allow my design to work.
Amelio Shembari –
I received the bottle stoppers that I order and was very much surprised to see that you had added a pop top can opener at no additional charge.. That was very nice of you.
I love your product and will no longer ever, ever make another chrome stopper. You have converted me. Keep up the good ideas.
Shane Purcell –
So far, I have purchased only bottle stoppers, bottle openers, and can tab openers. Honestly, based on nothing more than the materials, fit & finish, ordering process, delivery speed, and price, these are the best value turning kits I have used of any kind.
The turnings are all well received, and I personally use the bottle stoppers and opener. Honestly, I just don’t often reach for a tab puller when opening cans. I suspect others’ mileage may vary, but I probably won’t buy any more of those.
Ian Whittaker –
I am very pleased with the stoppers and openers that I have purchased from you. The quality and uniqueness of them are complimentary to what I do…Create treasures.
Jim Leonard –
I received the stoppers I ordered today, including the tab lifter you included. Thank you very much for the quick service. The stopoers are great, really nice finish, and they fit into bottles much better than anything else I’ve used.
I will definitely be ordering more in the near future.
Tom Albrecht –
I have purchased bottle stoppers, stubby drills, a tap, and two topper mandrels from Niles. The quality of the materials is excellent in all cases. The customer service is personal, efficient, and just what you would expect when dealing one-one with the owner who wants to make sure all the customers happy.
You just can’t beat Niles Bottle Stoppers. You might find something that’s less expensive elsewhere, but you get what you pay for at Niles— Top notch products, and top notch service from a top notch person.
Dave Martin –
I absolutely love your bottle stoppers. I purchase the SS-9000 series because their smaller size compliments the style of stopper I generally turn, and the flat bottom allows my stoppers to stand out and be displayed easily when not in use. Your customer service has proven to be second to none, and I have not had the first issue with any order I’ve placed with you. Thank you so much!
Jesse Jenkins –
I heard about them on a Facebook group ‘woodturning’ today i made my own mandrel and have turned 8 stoppers.. i need to order more already. I love them. Thanks.
Steven Hall –
Excellent quality and fast order processing. Will continue to use your products.
Tarn Faulkner –
For your actual stoppers, the SS-9000 has been the best general purpose bottle stopper, working in most wine bottles and many other bottles. The SS-8000 fits in wine bottles more easily, but doesn’t seem as secure. The Cosmopolitan SS Whiskey works only for some of the larger hard alcohol bottles, but doesn’t fit some of the larger and smaller varieties. I like the look of the SS-9000 the best. I do wish the SS-9000 was *just* a hair smaller in diameter – I’m talking about 3/1000 of an inch less, to make it fit into wine bottle slightly easier while still being secure.
Walter Spencer –
I was super pleased with both the stoppers and the bottle/can openers.
When bottle stoppers came out I made a few for friends and to sell…they were the chrome plated ones. After using one of them for myself and the plating came off I didn’t make anymore.
I really like your SS stoppers so much I’m thinking I might start making stoppers again.
I turned a bottle opener and can opener for a friend who is going through cancer treatment because she couldn’t use her fingers to open cans anymore. She has told me many times in the last month just how much they have helped her.
The only thing I can say about your products is … please keep making them.
Ian Friskney Ontario, Canada –
I am very pleased with the quality of the bottle stoppers and the bottle openers.
I gave away most of them as gifts over Christmas but did keep a couple of stoppers for my own use. The gift recipients seemed suitably impressed with both my turned handles and the stoppers and openers. The bottle openers always caused some discussion because of the uniqueness of the mechanism. It had to be demonstrated to some before they could either fathom how to apply it or that it could work. I was amused each time by people’s reactions.
I can report that the stoppers that I kept for myself, used on more than one occasion to stopper an almost full wine bottle lying on its side in the fridge, have proven to be always leak free.
Cindy Rowsey –
Very pleased with quality and design. I have used other bottle stoppers that do not fit in bottles tightly therefore not really a “usable” item. I really like the design of the stoppers that stand up so the stopper can be on display in a bar area rather than laying down. My customers really like the design as well
Michael Sosnoski –
When I found your products online, I was using another brand that I was perfectly happy with, but I thought yours looked interesting. I placed a small order and quickly used them up. I then placed a larger order. I’ve gone through about half the stoppers and have only a couple bottle openers left. All gifts.
I still have several pieces of the previous brand I was using and don’t know what to do with them. Perhaps use them for giveaways where I have no personal connection to the recipient. I feel your products are so superior to others, that I cannot give the previous brand to someone who knows someone to whom I gave a Ruth Niles stopper.
JOHN MACKENZIE –
Hands down, Ruth Niles bottle stoppers are the best. Why? Stainless doesn’t chip, rust, or discolor. The machining is beautiful and nicely polished. The O rings form a perfect seal and are very rugged. Her prices can’t be beaten. She ships incredibly fast and packs like your mom. Personally, I use the brass inserts coupled with the stainless stoppers. Why fuss with trying to tap wood, which has a tendency to strip and cause problems. Use a brass insert and you’ll never have a problem with the stainless stopper coming loose or pulling out of the wood. Plus with brass inserts the user can unscrew and swap wooden tops.
Daren Dugger –
I did months of research and checked out multiple products before buying from you and it was worth it. These are the best fitting bottle stoppers I have found anywhere and it will be the only ones I use going forward.
John Brinkerhoff –
I am very pleased with your wine stopper and bottle opener supplies. I have made about 15 wine stoppers and 1 bottle opener in total, and your stainless steel is the best. I gave all but 3 of these away as Christmas presents this year.
Shari Boisclair –
What can I say about the stoppers themselves are wonderful. Customers love how they stand up on the counter. Shows them off nicely! Will get some more soon. I have tried other various stoppers but they don’t compare. Yours are by far the best I have used.
Larry Briski –
Let me first say that your products are some of the best quality, greatest material and workmanship in the market place. I have used other brands over the years, but I’m at a point where I won’t use any but yours.
The 9000 is my favorite for everyday practical use. The fit is far superior to anything else, it’s a great value.
Robert Chambers –
Bob Speed –
I really like the product I purchased. I do find customers balk at the $3 up charge for stainless and O-rings. I use these for myself and the ones I give as gifts to advertise my business. Perhaps when people use them and like them, they will select these. Well made.
Jim Howe –
I love your stoppers! I really like this last design, it feels like a better seal
Jim Collingwood –
I’m a relatively new woodturner, about 3 years. I started following your products a number of months ago and finally decided to take the plunge! The quality of your products is top notch. I won’t be using anything else. I really enjoy your webpage and the pictures you put on there. A fan and customer.
Cindy Navarro –
I think that your products are superior to any that I have ever used. I only use your bottle stoppers and other products. They are superior and I know that the metal will not be affected by wine, vinegar or oil.
John Daniel –
I have used your stoppers for about two years. I mostly purchased them from other vendors, but likely will buy direct as I assume that works better financially for you. I can clearly say they are the absolute BEST stoppers I use. I am no pro, and I am not the most experienced but I do love turning of all types. Stoppers have been great fun. I make them and give them away. I feel like that is better for me than trying to sell them. I turn because I love turning and I love to share the “love” so to speak.
I have tried several stoppers. That said I use only two. If I use a metal stopper it is always yours. I do use some cork stoppers and like those as well. Your quality is the very best of any I have ever used. Threads on the rod are machined excellently. I don’t know who the machinist is that you use, but don’t change. Excellent work; really. They are beautiful to look at and a joy to construct the stopper with your hardware.
I also have your mandrel. Again the milling of that is just excellent. It fits my lathe perfectly, is quality metal and the self cutting threads are a treat to use.
Thanks for offering quality products. This is something that is sadly becoming harder and harder to find.
Thanks too for freely and completely answering questions when I sent them to you. I am grateful. Give your machinist a pat on the back. The two of you are a great team.
M Bradshaw –
Your products are outstanding and superior to any I’ve found. I only use Niles stoppers and bottle openers for my projects.
Wayne Hale –
I was very impressed with the packaging when I opened my shipment and extremely pleased with the quality of the items
B Steiner –
I have always been very well satisfied with your products. They are as advertised, good quality and reasonably priced. I don’t do a lot of these products, it is mostly a hobby and I give away many of the items I make. I have sold a few and everyone has been well pleased with the products.
Thanks for providing these great items.
Rich Hamady –
Your products have been fantastic to work with and I sold out the last craft show I did at work!! The quality is top notch, they look beautiful and I love the fact that they have flat tips so that the customer can stand them up and display them when not in a bottle.
Julie Hagan –
I LOVE the Niles Bottle Openers. I get so much attention from my customers and they love giving them as gifts.
I bought the Threaded Insert for Bottle Stopper Chuck: 4 pack from Penn State which works great with being able to turn the Bottle Openers and tenderizers and tampers. Plus you can actually swap out the items with the finished turned item in case someone wants a different look
John D. Salmon –
They are a beautiful product. The very best in the business.
I have not had very many bottle stopper sales in the past 6 months. People are just not purchasing what I have to offer in my market place. I keep trying. The quality of your products are outstanding. The products ordered were received in a very timely manner and in excellent condition.
Paul Velotta –
I have been very happy using your bottle stoppers and in fact have had my brother, Pat, in California purchase some from you too
Paul Rea –
I especially like the flat bottom bottle stoppers. I market them as both bottle stoppers as well as decorative items for mantles, bookshelves, window sills, entertainment centers, etc. You’d be surprised (or maybe you wouldn’t) how many folks give them a second look and buy with the ability to display the art/piece instead of tossing it into a drawer. Did not get the same response to the tenderizers but that could have been the venues we attended. Will try them again as I personally like them.
Frank Krammerer –
I purchased some of the standard bottle stoppers, and some whisky stoppers. The wine/bottle stoppers work exceptionally well. They fit all of the wine bottles that I use. The Whisky stoppers fit the larger bottles and go down to the last O-ring, like Woodford Reserve. Other bourbon bottles go to the 2nd ring. That is fine with me, although they show 2 or 3 O-rings. Thanks for a superior product.
Dave Cunningham –
I have gone through a couple hundred of your SS-9000 bottle stoppers. Never had a flaw or bad finish (of the stopper – I’ve screwed up the finish on dozens of the wood half). Quality is awesome. Everyone who has received one has loved it!
I even enjoy my conversations with he charming saleslady who answers the phone 🙂
Gareth Lintt –
I quite like your products. My wife pointed out to me that the stoppers with the 3 rubber o-rings were slightly small. Not too small, depending on the bottle, but small (in diameter). The four o-ring models are great. And I love the bottle openers.
Gar Brandt –
Your stoppers are the absolute best!! Can only afford them if I get an order!
Best customer service!!
Craig Milliron arrowsprings.com –
I have decided to start with two items. The bottle stopper you recommended and the new design bottle opener. I feel both are the epitome of graceful lines and function as well as design for their ability to properly display the finished project.
Roper Roper –
My customer have raved at how much they enjoy using your SS bottle stoppers and bottle openers, everyone that has purchased one has called to buy more for their friends and family.
Bob Siebum –
I much prefer your stoppers to the teardrop type; the machining is far superior and the style is as well. Being able to stand them up on the counter or the table is a big bonus. I belong to a Fly Fishing/Tying Club and I donate stoppers to fun raising efforts at monthly meetings and our annual Fall Festival. I pair the stoppers with donated wine from our local vineyards.
We just completed our Fall Festival and we had several wine/stopper prizes in the raffles and the Silent Auction. I had several of the teardrop style stoppers I was trying to liquidate. Two of the folks that won the wine asked if I could swap out the tear drop style for yours that they had seen on the table. Of course, I accommodated them.
You have a winner with your stoppers. I will be purchasing more. I like the 9000 series for the heft and visual balance. Very classy for a few cents more. Thank you for a quality product and personal communication.
Mark Peters –
Love your stoppers. No intention of buying elsewhere. I also have your mandrel. I do not use the tap feature on it though – I’ve found it much easier to use a standard tap That said – I much prefer your MT2 mandrel over my old one which required a chuck. Customer service is top notch as is the shipping speed and packaging.
Dr. Tom Roden –
I love your products. They are the finest on the market and make my work look much better. They are priced very fairly for the quality. I won’t buy from anyone else
Jeff Stanford –
I think your products and shipping methods are very good. I have switched 100% to using your stoppers and openers and my customers prefer them too. They are delighted with the smaller size and versatility of the stoppers. Thank you.
Norman Dallura –
So far I have only made about a dozen bottle stoppers and I have not one left after friends and family saw them. If I hear any complaints, I will let you know, but at this point in time I am delighted, both with the stoppers and with the instructional information on your site.
Tom Morris –
I have used a couple styles of bottle stopper and the newer bottle opener. Both are top quality and I have nothing bad to say about them. Along with some exotic wood turned on a lathe, they make great gifts. No one has ever figured out what the bottle opener is. So they also make a great conversation piece.
Mark Mayo –
So far I have purchased two models of stainless steel stoppers. Both are the best in the business. Once I received these I quickly gathered up my completed stoppers using other brands and took them from sale. At shows I put the inferior stopper in the close out section. My favorite part about buying from you is that you are a person, not a giant company. That matters a lot for me
Gary Meier –
I have always been impressed with the quality of your products. One of the issues I’ve been facing is many wine companies are now going to screw on caps and some folks don’t see the need for stoppers. I have started showing them in olive oil bottles get people thinking in a different direction.
Your quality is great.
J B Norrell –
I’ve been thrilled with your products Ruth. I’m planning on ordering more bottle stoppers very soon. I snicker at the bottle stoppers that many of the stores offer. Chrome and cork…those won’t last anytime at all. Your shipping is always fast and on time. I want to try some other products in your line soon as well. Keep up the great work and I look forward to working with you more in the future. All the best!
Jim Bradshaw –
“Excellent wine bottle stopper. The weight seems to make the difference. Thank you!”
Nothing else need be said.
Davy Edwards –
I am totally satisfied with all aspects of your products, and the customer service is great. I will continue to buy and use your products. I have just about used all of the last 200 stoppers from you so I’ll be ordering again soon. I actually bought another wood turner out and he had some PSI chrome stoppers in the lot of items, never opened them straight to the trash. But as said before great products and service.
Kevin Cox –
Your products are absolutely wonderful and when I run out of stoppers you will be the first to know!
Donna Dauber – Pens, Gizmos, and Other Stuff –
Both my Husband Paul ( who makes the bottle stoppers) and I (who sell them at craft shows) love your items. The Wine stoppers that stand on their own are great. We are getting together a list of items we are going to order for this years shows. Your stoppers are the best that we have found.
Dave Cunningham –
I have tried a few different bottle stoppers, none compare to yours in quality. I have never heard of any of my bottle stoppers “wearing out” or showing any sign of deterioration. Although in today’s disposable society I don’t know if I would hear; most would just trash it and buy a new one. The “fit and finish” on your product is second to none and that is coming from a retired aerospace engineer who is pretty used to precision and attention to detail. The designs are clean and simple and always compliment the part of the bottle stopper that I contribute. Obviously I’m a fan of your products, I’m even a fan of Ruth! Every time I call you are pleasant and a joy to speak with and you take the time to chat – much like home (Kauai)
David Wallace –
I have purchased both the SS-9000 and your bottle opener. Both are very high quality and I have been very pleased with them. wouldn’t change a thing!
Matt Van Vleet –
Honestly I loved the products I ordered and got from you! I am still a newbie when it comes to turning things like this so I had to do a little learning with that portion of the stoppers and openers but your products made that much more simple and easy to get around for me. I will be ordering again soon
Jeff Stanford –
I think your products and shipping methods are very good. I have switched 100% to using your stoppers and openers and my customers prefer them too. They are delighted with the smaller size and versatility of the stoppers. Thank you.
John Simpson –
I just wanted to take the time to tell you how much I like both your bottle stopper and bottle opener designs and how satisfied I am with your service. I am an amateur woodworker with limited lathe experience but have been able to make wonderful gifts from your excellent stainless steel components
Yes, one pays more for this product, yet one can differentiate oneself from other similar products by offering a lifetime warranty. If this product delaminates, rust, etc. Send me a bottle of wine and I’ll send you a replacement stopper. (Stopper assembly only) L.O.L. Seriously, put out the specs on most stoppers compared to food grade SS. Let the consumer decide.
This is a fantastic stopper with several advantages over others. SS vs chrome plated so won’t corrode; flat on bottom so it stands up nicely; the O-ring and shape seals better, particularly if bottle is horizontal. Overall 5-star product!
Travis Chamberlain –
Love the new stopper design. Made just as easily as the others. Uses the same mandrel as the 301, which is a huge upside, so didn’t have to buy a different one.
John Larson –
Excellent quality and design
Bruce Hoium –
Great profile with a great fit. Accents the turned product better than others
Short and stout with better standing platform
