    Bag Hackers - Where do you get spare o-rings?

    I'd like to try a couple of bag hacks and I need probably 10-20 o-rings. TB doesn't sell then on the "Parts" page and everything I see on Amazon is either huge or a rubber gasket. Are there any bag hackers out there with a preferred source for o-rings?

    I haven't found any just like TB's, but I have some slightly smaller white ones I got on Amazon. They've been working well for me.

    I've purchased black o-rings on etsy. I've also seen them in sewing/knitting stores, but these are typically white or clear.
    Getting to the point with too many bags to list them all. Current daily carry is a PickUp Truck and Everyday Cubelet. Love all my shop bags, ghost whales, cubelets. Hoping to travel again soon to use my A30 and co-pilot.

    I know from some TB video that the O rings are made of Delrin.

    I would call TB and ask them where they get their stuff, they might be willing to see you some too, at least give you a name to look into/search. Good luck.

    They sell the same size O-Rings at any fabric store in the notions section.

    Maybe the question is....how do we get them to put them on the "parts" page?

    I concur, would love to see TB offer black o-rings to purchase.
