Rescue O-ring

I just lost the O-ring on my rescue vest. Where can I get another one?

if your kayak a lot, a cow's tail can be absolutely invaluable, wheter it is towing a boat (when it is safe), or when the S*#t hits the fan and you are pinned, it can be an easy way to set-up a stabilization line and allow you to use your hands without worry for the rope... bottom line they are great tools and when used properly can be a huge help.
back to your query, any good shop will have rescue rings with the cows tail and a big paddle biner attached. -they aren't just for kayakers, anyone in swiftwater can use them
my $0.02

I already have a tether with the o-ring and biner, but I lost the other O-ring and I need another one.

The ones at the hardware store only hold up to 200 pounds of pressure.

go to any outdoor shop that carries climbing equipement and ask for a rappel ring. they are very strong, hold up under the elements and cost only a few bucks.
