You might have answered your own question. A couple drops of oil (or whatever lube you have) on each o-ring should solve the problem if that is where it's leaking from. If not, then you have a different problem.

hello and welcome to the wonderful world of DeadlyWind and their amazing products.

In the instructions you can find on the DW website it warns that they almost make the inner O-ring (the one on the stalk) too small because they expect it to swell when you lube it.

so after lubing up the inner o-ring with some Sl33k (PLEASE don't use any oil of any kind) as well as the two outer o-rings and air it up. If it still leaks after that apply a little bit more lube to the inner o-ring. If it persists after that then gently stretch out the inner o-ring (just a little)

also check to make sure that big plastic ring you have is fitting properly and in the right place (pretty sure its flat side facing up)

This should fix you right up, and if it doesn't then feel free to PM me and I'll do whatever I can to help ya out. I own this Bolt and it is amazing and will work wonders for you once you got it up and running right. :D
