What model was the KM? Also when your having trouble with the stem becoming difficult to attach/remove just lightly wet the grommit with water or olive oil.

I have no idea what kind of KM it is and no one else does either i made a thread about it awhile ago asking people what it was and no one knew. I tried the olive oil and water trick but it dosent work for some reason. I just measured a KM base i have for another hookah and its opening is 2" is that standard or would a 1 3/4 work?

Measuring mine it was approx 2" at the grommit and just 1.5" stem alone.

many bases are measured acording to the hole opening.ie, !.75"(for most syrians) ect.In the future, try some water or cooking oil on your grommet before inserting it into the base. This will make it much easier to remove.

Most likely it uses a Large hookah base. If it was around 30 inches fully set up then it uses a large base.

this base will polly work for your rig,although i'm not entirely sure. 1 3/4" is the standard hole size for most large narghille, excluding mya.
You should shop around though. I recently saw this base on sale on another website for less $. I don't remember which website, however.

Ask them if that will fit the grommet size 30. KM stems to fit into KM Vases need grommet size 30
