    Those oem clips are junk, what type of line did he use? The poly line i use forms to the nipple and is hard to come off with no clamp.

    They were Tygon lines. Show me what lines you are using as this winter I am bringing all my ski's home and changing every clamp i have. A lot of them have zip ties, but they will eventually dry also even though my ski's never sit out in the sun for long periods of time. It might be an interesting thread to see what everyone is using for clamps.

    OK, here's how to do it:

    Use .025" stainless steel safety wire. It comes in one pound rolls, which will last most people several lifetimes. You can probably bum some from an airplane mechanic at your local small airport if you buy him a Coke or something. 3 feet of wire is enough for several 'Skis, including screw-ups.

    Two wraps of wire around the hose & fitting:


    Twist the wire:


    Don't get it too tight!


    Cut off the excess wire and bend the end over so you don't stab yourself with it:


    This example actually looks a little sloppy, but it will work fine. They make special twisting tools for this, but you don't need one. Duckbill pliers work nicely.
