Can anyone tell me where to get the right-sized o-ring for an inflator hose fiiting?

I've just spent an hour and a half trying to get what I thought was a 'good-enough' replacement to go in and figured I needed something to stop it going down as far as the shraeder valve.

So I thought that I could poke the old o-ring in and then hook it out after, however if fitted right in, so I guess that the 'almost good enough' o-ring that I have is a 'not good enough' one.

Have you tidied that kitchen table yet? And hung the washing out? Never mind o-rings, get on with your chores!

Bagsy the Shearwater, and first option on the rest of it for spares. :)
Unlucky, while tidying the diving table, I happened across a bag of assorted o-rings and one has popped straight in! :teeth:

If only it were that easy with women ....................... erm ....................... that is to say ........................... of course they would probably get a man to pop one in for them?
