Default Straightening out a Nammor

Ok, Nammor owners front and center (ye scurvy dogs). I need some assistance straightening out my blinking hoses! I've used both of them several times now and neight of them WILL STRAIGHTEN out! I even ran HOT water thru them, had the BF hold one end and pull slightly, but they still "curled" up (like the mangy dogs de be).

Normally I wouldn't care, but with my smaller lighter hookah - they are threatening to tip it over every time I use one of them! Arrrggggggggggg!

Any tips to straighten these devil dogs out, so I no longer be tipping me pipe and risking sending me carpet to Davey Jone's Locker?

Try attaching a weight or sometihng and hanging em. Might take some time, but whenever you aren't using them if you do that it'll help out.

Hang it over the shower curtain rod and turn the shower on HOT water and let the bathroom get hot and steamy and it should straighten out in no time.

I tried the hair dryier - nothing happened. I'm NOT sticking it in the freezer after what happened to Dark's hose. I'll try the "steaming" method then hang it off the radator pipe w/ a weight to cool. Maybe that will work.

I don't know, the one Mahir sent me it pretty straight right out of the box. There's a few minor bends in it, it's not PERFECTLY straight, but it's certainly not an issue.

mine are also from mahir, they were bound w/ a rubber band. not tightly, but enough that there are 2 major bends in both hoses. With my heavy hookahs, it's not a problem - it's not enough to tip the hookah, but w/ my 22" & 17" the bends are enough that if I'm not careful moving the hose (even bringing it to my mouth to draw) it threatens to tip the hookah over (and in the case of the 17" POS hookah DID TIP).

I love the way a MYA hangs/sits - i was hoping the nammors did the same. But the construction (plastic) seems to be the cause of the issue. I quess I may have to break down and get a few KM hoses... I couldn't care less if it wasn't washable, just as long as it's doesn't rust on me.

really you just need to give them a constant high heat. what you can do is tie it to a straight pole and keep it tight then apply a constant high heat. this will make the plastic lose its memory from before and it will go straight. just remember, a constant high heat.
