Default KM Hose issue

I love my new KM, but I am having issues with the hose falling out of the stem. The system doesnt seem to be real well thought out or else the hose is just so heavy it falls out easily. Any tips or tricks to keeping it stuck in there nice and tight? I know I know I should get a Nammor but I have already spent this month and next months shisha funds and its only the 3rd Ouch

It helps if you use a grommet! LOL :P

I had the same issue. I used a bit of paper towel to help make it stick in there better. It didn't always work as it would wiggle it's way out.

I'd get super mad if it fell out and jam it back in there, just so it could fall out again! GOOD LUCK.

lol

the hose that came with my KM doesnt fit at all, its just too big. my choices are to either grind down the wood a little so it fits into the port with a grommet on or just use my nammor.

Try taking some thin cardboard, and soaking it in water for a while. Then wrap a single layer around the hose and jam it in there! Hope that makes sense?

Not sure if anyone has attempted this, but it worked quite well for me in a similar situation. Use aluminum foil. Once its in there, the irregularities of it and the malformed shaped to it help hold it in place and keep it there. Hope this helped...
