    Speedgoat - and they're expensive. BUT, I went to my LBS after presumably being in the same position as you, -and got NON-AVID compression fittings and compression nuts (of way higher quality), went home, prayed, and the things worked. No leaks, nothing.

    The LBS had this "kit" of a bunch of generic hydro stuff, and I went through several different compression olives until I found one that was about the same size/shape as the Avid one.

    PS: the avid compression nut is a piece of dog crap. I barely torqued on it and it deformed and cracked. Becareful, or get new ones.

    Avid needs to include several compression fittings/hosebarbs in their bleed kits. IF you don't get a perfect seal on the first try, the olive is toast, and you gotta do it again. I burned through both olives on the rear brake and then was stuck, and about to go out of town the next day with my bike!! good luck.

    PS: I dont' know what you mean by "locking bleed fittings," unless you are talking about the interface with the clamp that attaches to the end of the syringes?
