Removing and Fitting Flippy Lids

    does anyone regularly remove and re-fit flippy lids? I bought a fastrack thinking it was a great alternative to a bottling tree but I also bought flippy lid bottles thinking they were a great alternative to capping bottles. Flippy bottles look like that won't fit properly into the holder so I'm just wondering if constantly removing flippy lids is a pain or will lead to damage over time.

    It will be a pain to constantly remove those and doing so might compromise their integrity and ability to work properly under pressure.

    They can be dried without a bottle tree easy enough.

    I have a bottle rack and flip lid bottles. The bottles will fit between the actual holes you are supposed to use so get about 9 or 10 on it. I remove the lids from 4 bottles so I can stand the second tray on it. It's not that big a deal if you use a no rinse sanitizer as you don't have to wait too long for the bottles to try and you can repeat with a second batch (I'm normally bottling 35/36 bottles).
