Default the leaning hookah of km....

I just got a km exotica a week or two ago and love it... but when I use the hose that came with it, it leans like crazy due to the weight.... so Im using my nammor and I don't have that prob, but I really like the km hose much more... I was wondering how I could fix this... I have already tried electrical tape under the grommet, didn't help at all, any ideas?

Mine leans too. Not too much, but a definite lean. I think it's the base that does it

As far as I know, all the bases are hand blown glass, hence you will get wobbly ones, bent ones etc. Mine has a tiny slight wobble along with the lean!

use some sort of box, and cut a hole in it for the hose to pass through. I did it to my 10.5 in pumpkin when I got my small nammor. Luckily that same day I got an MZ, and didnt have to use the box stabalizer for very long.

when you added tape to the stem before applying the grommet how much did you put on and is it a tight fit? i usually have to go around 6 times when there is a fitting issue. It may be the hole in the glass is not even. one way or another we should be able to help you fix it!!!

My pear used to lean, but every time I smoke it I just use the grommet from my chiller. Replacing the grommet should help.

If its just the stem that leans, getting a tighter fitting grommet or tape it to make it tighter, if its the whole hookah, then i dont know

This happened to my tri-metal as well since I replaced the rubber grommet with a silicone one. I made a shim out of cardboard and duct tape and then use 2 rubber bands around the base of the purge valve to around the vase. Works like a charm.

Is it too much of a tight fit in the vase?

Rub some water on the grommet and it'll slide into the vase easily. I've noticed if you rub water where the grommet slides in, it slides in the hookah stem much easier.

Try sanding down the grommet until its not too much of a tight fit into the vase.

And yes. I was trying to specific as I could so you evil people can't put my post in the "Funny Out of Context Sayings" thread >_<
