Found a way to fix the issue with water splashing everywhere.,
This review is from: Keurig 5048 My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter - Old Model (Kitchen)
So I bought this filter, installed it, and when I made my first cup of coffee water splashed everywhere and I got a ton of coffee grounds in my coffee. After playing with it for a while and wasting almost 10 cups of coffee, I finally figured out how to fix it.
There is a needle on the top that, when the handle is closed, inserts into the hole in the reusable filter. Surrounding this needle is a rubber gasket. Gently pull this gasket down a little bit. Be careful, not to pull it off completely. Once I did that no more mess and better tasting coffee.

Thanks for taking the time to post this! It does solve the splashing problem and makes the coffee a bit stronger. Now I wish I could make the coffee as strong as I like it without the hassle of McGyvering a disposable K-cup into the bottom of the My K-cup holder. All in all though, thanks a ton, I was about to give it away or store it for company use only since I couldn't justify throwing billions of plastic coffee thingys into the landfill.

Your post just saved me from chucking My K-Cup Reusable Coffee Filter in the trash. Thank you for posting. I was getting really irritated because coffee grounds would get everywhere and coffee was splashing on my counter. I just left my computer and carefully adjusted the gasket and VOILA! a beautifully brewed cup of coffee! Thank you!
