Default Not the usual Phunnel Bowl Problem

I have the cheap-ass Havana Phunnel from Hookah-Shisha (http://www.hookah-shisha.com/p-2299-...kah-bowls.html) and i avoided the spire problem by using a paperclip.

But, the big problem is that the damn hole on the bottom of the bowl is so wide that it slips right over my grommet (the big white ones).

I tried some of the things suggested on here like using electrical tape to make the grommet fatter and it worked great until halfway through the bowl, i looked at my computer for 2 minutes, and the bowl toppled over onto my rug, coals burning straight through.

So what i'm asking is if anyone has had problems like this, how can i avoid this from happening again?

It seems like the bowl is fine at first when the grommet is nice and firm but as soon as it heats up, the bowl starts leaning.

I've had this same issue, minus the carpet burns. Upon receiving my Chinese Phunnel, I noticed the bowl grommet that comes with it doesn't fit it well. In fact, mine slid right up inside the Phunnel, and I had to pry it out with a pair of needle-nose pliers, ultimately destroying the cheap stock grommet.

I've found I have to use TWO bowl grommets in order to make this bowl fit my MYA QT. I use the grommet that came with my hookah, as well as one of those aftermarket bowl grommets sold by most vendors.

yea same problem with my havanna one haha i ordered a tangiers though so hopefully soon i should have that but my bowl slips down my grommet too sometimes and getting it out i ripped it haha but now it slides down further on my km and prevents the bowl from sliding down because its wider so you could try adding like a slit to the grommet on one side?

I'm just half tempted to get a vortex. Yesterday was the first time i actually had it working correctly and i had double the smoke i usually did, but then this happened haha. If the paper towl trick doesn't work i'll just scrap the bowl.

had the same with the vortex, but after switching rubbers from other hookahs i was lucky enough to make it fit!

tape or some sort of glue could solve it
