Default My carb needle o-ring replacement technique

I wasn't sure where to post this, so I settled on posting it in the monster truck section of this forum. I just recently tore down my HPI nitrostar s25 engine and am currently in the process of a rebuild. Part of this rebuild included replacing the carb needle o-rings. Getting them off is easy enough but getting new o-rings can be a hassle, so here's something I stumbled upon and it worked incredibly well and made the task virtually painless. I coated the o-rings with associated green slime, I then inserted 2 small zip ties, (one on either side of the o-ring); stretched them and positioned them onto the carb needle grooves. I replaced every o-ring in under ten minutes. I realize there are probably quite a few techniques out there, but this one worked well for me and I thought to share with the forum community.
