Default How to stop tray rattle on hookahs...

I have been tired of my tray on my KM americana rattling every time I take a hit. Lately, I have been wrapping the plate that the tray sits on with foil and then putting the tray on that to absorb the vibrations and it works. Now, I am tired of using so much foil everytime. Is there a permanent way to stop this?

The tray on my KM's is usually weighted down with a windcover.
Nice & quiet.

you can just cut a bit of some cloth or something to put under it if it bothers you that much, even a piece of paper towel would probably work fine. for a permanent fix you could glue a piece of cloth or use some tape on the bottom of the tray to pad it a bit

If the diffuser and windcover does'nt work,try a couple pieces of felt tape. This tape has adhesive on one side, just cut 2 or 3 pieces to size,apply to underside of tray,where tray rests on the stem.

Stem grommet works perfectly, it also allows me to adust the height of my tray so my windcover will fit any bowl. I will post a pic soon.

Sorry to sound like a broken record here, but yeah, diffuser!
My hookah used to wobble and the tray used the rattle as well, until I stuck a diffuser on it.
Now it's quiet and stable.
