Default Help with base

Hey guys just got my KM amoura in from Hookah John about an hour ago, and I'm having trouble fitting the stem into the base right at the rubber black part (OBV). Any tips to get a snug fit?! thx guys

Some kind of bandage tape, like the water proof kind is always great. It's white and you can get it any Walgreen. Electrical tape works also. Or athletic tape i used one. But i would go for the White water proof bandage tape its your best bet.

Hope this helps

This happens with a lot of KM's, but not with nour... hehehe

anyhow, just wet the grommet and work it in.

you can sand it down a little too, but you have to work it out slowly eitherway

Just a hater, if you don't like KM's that much then why do you own one. Just sell it to someone who will treat it better?

Not to be mean

you're right...I had to use electrical tape on my nour because every grommet was waaaay too loose. pretty much unsmokable right out of the box so to speak.

Yep, mine too Bungle. The pipe couldn't even hold up a KM hose without coming out of the base. I sold it.

My KM fits pretty tight too. I don't bother with water on the grommet, instead I just push it down until it is snug. That creates an air tight seal and is all that really matters. Just don't try and pick it up by the stem, pick it up by grabbing the base. I learned that the hard way once with my KM.

every hookah I have I remove the grommet and put electric tape around it. Fits perfectly and I can easily without any worries pick it up by the stem.. One hookah from tunisia is great, a large ashtray that is one part with the stem, I just lift it in the ashtray!

Put a little water around the grommet, and the opening in the vase, and gently screw it in.
