I Glowforged a hook to hang the end of my exhaust hose high on the garage wall. Attached it to the hose with duct tape. Worked great for about a month, then the duct tape slid off the hose and the hook. Reattached with duct tape. Worked for a few days then slipped apart again.
Decided I needed to find a more solid fitting for the end of the exhaust hose. Lo and behold my local big hardware store (Orchard Supply) had a promising contraption in black plastic: Prinsco Corrugated Internal Snap Coupler, 4 Inch.
What’s great about this is that it’s designed to screw into the kind of hose the GF uses. A few turns and it snugs up to the hose. No more wimpy deformable hose end.
So I screwed it in, then drilled two holes through the hook and the Prinsco fitting to attach them together. Two small bolts, two nuts and it’s gonna stay put.
