Many times, a hose will snap or cut easily because of the materials that go into the make of it. Looking for hoses that are made of quality material as well as those that include more layers in the inner tubing than just one or two will exponentially decrease the chances of the hose being damaged.

Slide the tubing over the barbed end of the hose end fitting. If your hose has an additional piece of hose over the part that gets clamped (like mine did) put it on the tubing before you place the tubing over the threaded barbed fitting then slide the extra piece over the tube.

This type of clamp is so low profile that it will allow the original threaded fitting part and the matching threaded collar to be reinstalled easily. Your repair will look just like the original factory hose connection.

I know what you are thinking, plastic fittings…mmmm… And I have to admit that I am also usually very dubious about any gardening/watering tools that use anything other than solid brass.
