I third that motion.
Aside from that, i would say electric tape would probably work pretty well if you want to use more than the one hose, but i would recommend protecting the hose by putting a buffer between the sticky part of the tape and the end of the hose. Rather than messing up your brand new hoses.. hope you get your next order pretty soon though.. good luck!
