Maybe just call Hagan on Monday and have them ship you a periodic maintenance kit with a new ring.

Do you see any cracks in the lid?

Hagan Customer Service - Caren is one CS rep. really nice 800-724-2436 This is the number I got via email to order if I needed something (saw a different one online). USA phone number.
