  • HELP! How do you install the fitting on the Nylon trim hose? PIC

    I have been banging my head on the wall on this for about two hours. My nylon trim hose has a leak and I am trying to replace it. The little brass ferrule looks to be smaller than the hose (see picture) and I cannot get it on the new hose (which is the exact same size). Is there a trick to this? I tried cutting the tube at an angle... nothing. I tried pinching the end... nothing. I tried lube... nothing.

    These stupid little details are really starting to make me tired of this project.

    Here is a picture of the old tubing with the ferrule still installed. Anyone know a trick?

    Easy answer, the ferrels are for one time use only, your ferrel has already been pinched down, it's simple you need a new one, looks like 3/8 and any hardware store should have them in the plumbing dept.

        deformed circle ring whenever they are pinched down.
        Being a plumber, we deal with this a lot. Yes a new piece would be nice,,,
        if not, with some soup put the outter nut behind that ring then tap it in.
