Default Useless Kegs?

Two of my 5 kegs (pins) leak like the Vice President's chief of staff. I've tried 5 different lids on them, new o-rings, the whole thing. It's pretty obvious that the leaks are coming from the main opening. Are they useless now? What can I do with them?

Try using packing under them to see if that helps. But pressurising with CO2 shold have the same effect.

Why don't you just place something under the footies to test it?

No reason to buy new ones if it won't fix the problem.
