the high temp silicone that they use on engines works great. You can buy it at kragen or any auto parts store. Some hardware stores might even have it. I have this shit by a company called Permatex, 'High Temp RTV Silicone Gasket maker' is what it says on the tube.

If you're going to home depot/lowes or another hardware store you want GE's "Household Glue". It's a 100% Silicone Sealant/Adhesive. It comes in a 2.8 fl oz tube. Make sure it says "Silicone II" on the tube. This brand can take temps up to 400F/205%.

Straight up, GE Silicone II caulk. Full sized tubes in a caulking gun are easier to make big smooth blobs with than the little hand held tubes. Be sure to get clear so you can see the innoculation holes through it. Put a blob on top and bottom of the lid for extra safety and to prevent rust in the drill holes.

It'll look like this when you are done:



You need an airport if you start using these and don't have some other kind of vent built in the lid. Jars form a vacuum in the PC and suck your syringe dry. Ports will leak and suck in dirty room air when you suck out innoculant from a liquid culture. Airport syringes, silicone ports and well flamed syringes will let you work in down right dirty conditions with complete success...
