Default NooB question

Ok well i look thou many post and i didn't see a answer to my question. I am having problems getting my hose onto the rack. I tried warming it in boiling water for 30 sec, 45 sec, and 1 min and when i tried to fit it over the tube it would not go. So am i suppose to put it into the opening or over it? So what am i doing wrong? So if this is such a stupid question but i wana get it to work lol my bottling date is soon. So please help me out lol.

Thanks
Ren

You need a larger diameter tube. It should snuggly slip onto the rack.

Odd that it came with the kit and you're having such a hard time. Do you have anything cone shaped that you could use to stretch it a bit to get it started? Otherwise, I'd agree with GT and try to get one with a large diameter if you can.

spray the racking tube and the inside of your hose with some starsan solution. Makes it a bit slippery.
