I replaced a damaged hose's end with the brass and chrome-plated clamp you see in the figure.
Since I wasn't able to get a direct grip with the clamp, I added a second layer of the hose, pictured.
I have two problems with this solution:
- It leaks.
- The sharp end of the chrome part is just waiting to cut someone's skin.
I could experiment with layers of teflon between the hose and the brass to stop the leak, but I can't think of a reasonable solution for the exposed sharp clamp right where the hose would be held.
What else should I be doing?
