I know I can order these from a slough of online stores, but I really just want to run down to wal-mart or home depot.. do they have the correct size there?
If noone answers I'll just take a Joe apart and bring one down, I just thought maybe someone might have already attempted this....

If you take one to a plumbing dept somewhere they should be able to help you out. It's a standard plumbing size.

I used to know, but I found it was cheaper to buy a 100 from one of the online stores. I took an o-ring down to Home Depot myself and measured that way. one of the stickie threads on yojoe forums is all about O-Rings and other stuff like that.

Cool guys thanks!
I just got back from my local hardware store and the o-rings were $.66 each!
I also went to walmart and another hardware strore, but both only sold them individually. Yeah, I think I'll just get them online. Thanks for the info!

I thought I saw 100 for 4.00 on ebay earlier "buy it now". If you only have 2 or 3 joes that need replacing, I'd just go to Wal-Mart, otherwise online is probably a safe bet.

I thought at Home Depot I used to find them about 19 cents, but it has been a few years

I found them at Home Depot and Lowes for about 15-20 cents each. I have used #9's for most of my figures, but for those with delicate crotches, you will want something thinner (#24 I think)

Thanks, I'm going to check that out. It figures that Home Depot would be that much cheaper! And I really didn't want to buy 100 of them!

Or you can do the old fasioned way by looking for O Rings yourself at True Value. I found a pack of O rings for 1.99 each which the pack holds 4 which is ok but the plastic bubble could have held more than 4 maybe 5 or 6

If I knew then what I know now is that I could have bought O rings from True Value to put my Battle armor Cobra Commander, Sgt Slaughter marauder version of Spirtit, Budo and Repeater back together with fresh new O rings
