Default Replacement vase grommet for KM's?

Tonight is a sad night for me. The rubber vase grommet on my week old KM 2 hose double pear has broken/torn . Now I need to find a replacement grommet. Looking at the different online vendors I see there a medium to large sizes and rubber or silicone. Which size and material to get? Can any of you KM owners chime in and help me out?

I usually just go to my local hookah bar, from what I understand they have a ton of em floating around. Done it twice and they gave me a new grommet for free.

That being said, using a piece of paper towel works just as good.

You might have to email or call them, I'm sure most vendors carry them, they just might not be on the site. If you still have trouble finding one, let me know and I can send ya one of my extras.

I know southsmoke carries the black "universal" grommets for that purpose. But many smoke shops do carry a wide array of grommets because they need them lol.

Thanks, I went to my local head shop and grabbed a couple of the black ones. These look like something that can be found in the plumbing section at Home Depot.

when u can't find vase grommets, electrical tape works wonders, and you can keep rolling it around the downstem until you get the exact thickness you need with your vase.

my mya mini grommet broke and what i did for a temp fix is put some masking tape on the stem and wrap a flat stretchy grommet i cut around it and then wiggle it in and wrap the seal with masking tape to seal it. works fine until the grommet mya sent me gets here.

the hookah my brother brought back from Tunisia 15 years ago had basically a medical tourniquet used as the grommet (just wrapped around and the stem stuck in)
