Default Small tangiers phunnel doesn't fit my 36" KM

It only fits onto the tip of the male port so not very secure. Is this normal? What should I do?

are you using a "mod" grommet? that is the thicker rubber grommets? sometimes they are too thick for a tangiers bowl, if this is the case, substitute a smaller bowl grommet or even a hose grommet....if you have to wait to order one, take the grommet off and use wet cloth or some wrapped foil.

I have the same problem with my mini phunnel. Even without a grommet, it barely fits.

Try putting the gasket in the bowl and then onto the hookah.

I've got a standard grommet which is pretty thin and even without the grommrt it barely fits. If I use a file to get a bigger opening would that ruin the bowl?

I used to use tissue paper when i had my KM and wet it, because it barely fit and was tight, use wet paper it will give a good seal

The hose port on the top of the KM's and I'll admit my new Thabet Younis are fat for no reason, but other syrian rigs tend to be a tad thinner if the stem is male. I say, since the bowls are irregular, you may have gotten short changed.

As for filing it, i would be very very very very careful and of course you would want to do some heavy cleaning lest you get ceramic bowl particles in your lungs.

How big is the opening on the phunnel bowl? My two small Tangier phunnels are 3/4" and 7/8".

I'm not sure, but I assure my 4 small tangiers funnel bowls fit on my KM SSR, my 2 temsahs, my AF, glyph, nour le, and thabet younis....neither of your bowls fit?

I agree my tangier's phunnels fit all of my hookahs... Your grommet is probably the biggest culprit.

great innovation lol

are the bottom parts of the tangiers bowl all the same no matter if there small, medium or large?

Or does the size of the bottom open up as well as the size goes bigger lol

Each piece will have variations in size because they are hand made. Also, not all ceramics shrink the same when fired.

They are hard to find but there are extra thin grommets out there. I had one it is about 3x the thickness of a balloon, rigid enough to keep its form. anyway if I didn't have this my Tangiers med. Phunnel wouldn't have fit my 29" KM and it's not short like a hose grommet so you have plenty of protection between the stem and bowl. I always look around whenever I go to a smoke shops and pick up little things like this because you never know when you may need it' I had to use a thin grommet with the big thick white grommet over it to fit my vortex properly on my Mya hookah. Just look around and keep an arsenal of extra stuff like every size grommet around, you will be surprised how often they come in handy. With my new KM and most bowls I never end up using the ones they come with but use them somewhere else inevitably down the line. They are cheap and good to have around.

Interesting... never had anyopne say anything about the phunnel bowls not fitting right. Most are made with a standard size hole at the bottom, but Tangier's bowls are handmade and differ slightly every now and then. If you can't find a thin enough grommet, you can always use electric tape. Just wrap it around the top of the hookah a few times and place the bowl on that. Only try as a last case scenario.

That looks like a Mya bowl gasket.
