just use wet toiler paper:

Wrap just 1 piece of folded, wet paper around the top of the stem, and test if the funnel fits!

Do you live by any hookah shops? You should take your stem there and the phunnel bowl and see if they have any grommets that fit.

Try the wet paper towel, I used to do that on my KM with my phunnel when I lost the grommet.

On my hookah (not a KM though) I put the grommet on the stem, then place the funnel on the grommet. This seems to work for me.

Good choice on the americana! They're so pretty looking. If you're using one of the thick white rubber grommets I suggest getting one of the thinner grommets, phunnels just don't fit well on the thick ones.

I'd suggest the wet paper towel or a piece of wet cloth. I really dont use grommets anymore as they vary too much from hookah to hookah

i've done paper towels before and i hated that the paper towel would get all juiced up from the shisha but, with the phunnel bowl, thats not gonna happen

really thinking about the electrical tape thing. sounds awesome and u dont have to keep putting new pieces like with the paper towel

i use some tissue/paper towel. as you said it soaks up the juice which i think is a win win situation. instead of the juice dripping all over my stem and then having to clean it, the tissue soaks it up and all i do is chuck the tissue at the end of the session and rinse the stem!
