Just a reminder, keep your credit cards on the other side of your flight suit. (Didn't happen to me, but others)

If I'm understanding all of you right, your trying to attach the hose to the flight suit, right?

I used a 1/2" PVC 90 degree coupling with tube insert on one end and a thread on the other. Glue a 4" piece of PVC in the slot, then glue a threaded coupler on the other end. Cut the threaded coupler about 1/4 to 1/2" from the 90 degree piece. The threaded coupler hides the thread of the 90 degree piece and gives you a wider surface. Get an expansion ring from any electrical department, 3/4 to 1/2". They're used on electrical panels to make larger holes smaller. They have two rings. Glue one of the rings to the base of the threaded coupling and your magnet(s) to the other ring. The magnet ring will go on the inside of your flightsuit and the the connector with "snap" onto the outside. Depending on the strength of your magnet(s), it should stay in place. The only drawback is the weight of the magnet as it could pull down on your flightsuit.

I can send some pics of mine if it help.

You mean Washing Machine discharge hose? I asked the guy at Home Depot for the dishwasher hose, but all they had of that was the black rubber hoses. I spotted the washing machine hose next to it, and it looks about right.



This stuff, ja?

Yeah, I cut mine in half, and it really even needs to be shorter.
