Default Vortex bowl + KM fitment question

Hello, I just picked up my first hookah (KM 38" 2 hose blue double pear) today from thehookah.com. Just got back from their store (local to me). I purchased the Vortex bowl with it and as I was putting everything together I came to realize that the Vortex bowl's neck has a larger inner diameter than the outer diameter of the grommet on the hookah so it won't seat properly. Has anyone else had this issue? Does the Vortex bowl not fit KM's?

EDIT: Nevermind. I'm retarded. I figured it out.

I use one of these grommets with my KM and vortex, heck I use this grommet with my KM clay bowl too.

I used wet pape towels, til I ordered an oversized grommet. But mine wasnt fitting tight and letting air in a lot.

Yea, i too use wet paper towel its works fine, but i have run into problems that if i put the paper towel up too high on the grommet, it will get this burning taste to it and it took me 3 sessions to figure that out.

Yup, that's what I figured out. I ended up picking up a couple of the over sized grommets from a local head shop this morning. It looks like it will work better now Thanks for the replies!

everyone has their special moments. I've gotten my grommet somehow into the bowl, on the inside, on more than one occasion.
