Winegrowers Supplies - Hose and hose clips
To fit the hose over a hose-connector: first slide the hose clip loosely over the hose, slide it along about 30 cms. Then dip 8
cms of the hose end in very hot water, hold it under the water for about 20 seconds until it softens. Take it out of the water and it will then slide easily over the hose-connector,
don't push it too far or the collar will not have room to move. Position the hose clip and tighten it with a screwdriver and 6 mm spanner.
