    Default O-Ring Tools?

    Where's the best source to buy some O-ring picks or tools? Did a search and didn't find any tips. Thought I saw them on Overready site once but not there when I went back so maybe it wasn't them. Appreciate any clues on this.

    Thanks!

    I'm really careful when using a stick pin to lift the ring from the groove, and after 4 or 5 years I have yet to damage one.

    Sears sells them in the tool department. Hardware stores usually have them in the plumbing department. KD tools makes a couple of nice ones (auto supply stores).

    I use the edge of a plastic card. An expired gift card. It works well.

    Jason at Darksucks has a great tool found here. This is the one I use and it is sturdy and safe.
