    Clamping Kana-Flex

    A question for those who've used this stuff...

    What kind of clamp/s have you used? I was wondering if there'll be a problem with air bleeding out at the couplings/filter et al. ...because of the corrugation on the outside of the hose.

    Needless worry?

    air wont bleed out... it's on intake side of the SC.... always under vaccuum, so if it didn't clamp nice, air will still be getting sucked in...

    here's a tip.... the hose has a metal wire helic coil within the hose walls... go back maybe 2" and snip the wire coil within the hose and work it out one end.... now you have 2" of soft rubber to evenly clamp and squick for a good seal

    needless worry

    This works perfect too. To remove the metal wire, just take a razor blade and carefully cut the groove that is on top of the wire making sure not to cut off center from the wire and through the hose. Then you can bend the wire out of its rubber enclosure and snip it off.
