Tie it around the clip, it doesn’t really need much pressure to keep it in place but give it firm knot anyway. Hasn’t come off for me since I done this over a year ago.
Hope this helps.

That’s not the problem buddy, the problem is getting the pin back in, I pulled it out to put the new hose on and now it won’t push back on no matter what I try.

sorry I misunderstood your problem.
Does the original hose go back in without issue?

Hi Andy, the connector is fully in mate, I wish it was that simple!

The clip going in was never a problem for me... it was how slack the clip was once you take it out. Hope you get sorted. Drived me nuts too.

It looks like you might need some Bow pliers/external circlip to get it to open wider so you can push it on.

See if you can find a motor factors that sell them and take the clip along to see if fits. I very much doubt you will get it on otherwise.

Tried one of these on a K7, proper pita but look at it this way, once you get it on at least it will be secure!

Only did it once and it wasn’t mine so I was not being overly cautious but think a wiggle/push technique helped, not a lot of room for manoeuvre but kind of walk it in is the best way I can describe it. The owner had already knocked up a makeshift holder by drilling a groove into a block of wood to fit over the pin to give a better grip because he had already bashed his knuckles 22 times. You only need to get the first bit over the fixing then it’s all gravy. Can’t remember if the pin is captive or not but if you can get it all the way out you could try heating it to give it a bit more flexibility. Failing that you will have to file off a little material from the groove in the hose fitting.

I’m thinking of getting a kranzle myself as I’ve had enough of my K5,,it takes about 3 minutes to start when coupled from hose pipe from tap & know when I connect my snowfoam gun it doesn’t always work & I have to hold the trigger while connecting the sf bottle.

I had the same problem fitting an aftermarket hose to my K4.

The issue, as i remember, is that the brass fitting needs to go in just a *fraction* more. I know it probably feels like it is fully home already, but try removing it and refitting it a few times. On mine, it finally went in a fraction more and the clip just went back on easily.

Take it out and check there isnt any fragment of grit or dirt just keeping it slightly out.
