Default troubles and some grommets

Alright so basicly my KM grommet has died. I purchased another grommet to replace it but sadly the grommet when on the hookah does not fit inside the base I use for it. I have tried sanding it down with very coarse sand paper and using a drimmel tool. Anyone else have any ideas to make it fit? So far no luck.

ditch the grommet and use a few layers of electrical tape? I have done it during desperate times... until you can find a proper grommet...

Those hard rubber grommets that come in the egyptian models are a pain sometimes. I use a little bit of olive oil if it is just a bit tight otherwise get a silicon type grommets, those are easier to work with.

I'd just cut the grommet a little and save you time and money man.
