When it comes to complete aggravation, putting a push lock hose together comes close to the very top of the list. As a matter of fact, the most common question seen on internet forums is “how do you do the push lock hoses?” And, most of the answers are way off the track.
The EZ-ON Hose Press installs -4 to -16 push lock hoses.
Difficult Methods of Installing Push Lock Hoses
These are the traditional methods. They do make it a lot harder to get the job done and could be problematic.
The Boiling Water Method
This method requires that you boil water to a rolling boil stage (above 212F) and then dip at least 5 – 6” of the hose and the fittings into the water and let them sit there for 15 – 20 minutes. Lubricate both the hose and fitting and push them together. Sounds simple doesn’t it? It is until you can’t get the hose past the second barb and then you can’t get it off to do it again.
The Heat Gun Method
This gets scary when you have to hold each of the sections next to 800+ degree heat! Burning the hose is common.
