Easy way to instal cocker lp hose?
 
Is there one? It's driving me crazy setting up my autococker since I can't figure it out! The only thing I can think of is softening the hose with a lighter and that may be a no-no since it could adversely effect the strength of the hose, making me go through the headache of reinstalling it yet again!

Run a litlle hot water on the end of the hose then press on. Or get better quality hose. Clippard is a good source, but you have to buy 50 feet. Also try ASP

You can also dip the end in rubbing alcohol, which makes it slide on pretty easily.

i use angled mini pliers, start a edge and you can make it go on, with a little twist

Hot water works or you can push the hose onto a pencil or pen tip to stretch is just a bit then quickly slip it on the barb

Put a smal drop of oil on the brab.

NO! Don't put oil on the barb! Unless you like having the hose pop off, then by all means, go ahead.
Isopropanol or rubbing alcohol (curiously, 77% iso) lubricate well enough and evaporate quickly. I've tried a lot of things and iso works the best.

Hats...

or your fingers. Been doing som re-routing of LP hose all week for a project gun, and stealing parts off my cocker, so new or clipped hoses are in order, and havent had to use anything other than my fingers and a bit of wiggling to get it in. (that just sounds dirty... and fun :D )

Patience. That's what it really takes. Just keep at it with your fingers or some needlenose pliers. You'll get it.
