Default KM hose questions

I just received my new KM from PimpYourHookah and I have two issues. The hose that came with the hookah is massive. The insert does not fit into the hose adapter, even without the grommit. Do I need to sand/cut it down to fit? Also the extra hose I bought has the insert end disconnected from the hose.See below. Is this a simple hot glue fix issue or should contact Billy? I know the Nammor hoses have intermittant issues with the inserts coming loose from the hose so no biggie if hot glue will fix it just fine. Thanks for any help. By the way, this thing is SWEET!

Seems like you shouldn't have to do that with a brand new hookah, but I guess you gotta do something. BTW -- which KM did you buy?

I just bought 3 KM hoses and they were too big for my hookah also. I sanded them down slowly and kept trying to re-fit them. Just be careful on the tip when you sand cause it can cause it to crack.

something else i did on one of mine that is similar to your pic, while the hose seemed wide enough, the piece that goes into the stem seemed to thin hence ruining the whole reason i bought the hose. I just tooka drill to bore it out very carefully. I made it alot wider, just use a bit a little bigger than the hole and dril through, then repeat with a bigger bit and repeat until you get a good size.

you will definitely need a grommet once you sand.

Thanks all for the help. I took a dremel with a medium grit sander and took it down some then smoothed it out with fine grit. Looks and works perfectly now with the factory grommit. I bought the KM On the Rocks. This exact color scheme.

I'm looking at that one too. Anybody know if Nammor hoses will fit this stem?
