I'm going to say: "No".
I get exactly 25" to the top of the rubber, but with a plastic QD with flare connection attached, you need another inch to get the high point of the tubing to QD flare connection to fit. I suspect if you used QDs with barbs instead of MFL connections you could cut a quarter inch or so off that.
Bottom line: if you have an honest 26", they'll fit. But barely...
