I got my 2 product regulator but it didn't come with any airline so off to the LHBS. Very dissappointed, they don't have the hardware to attach the airline to the regulator. How could this be? Looking on line I still don't see what I'm looking for. I would just like a few feet of air line with a flare connection for the ball lock and I'll crimp the other end onto the regulator. I suppose I could crimp the hose on to the flare connection but I'm not seeing these parts show up when poking around sites like Am I missing something? It can't be that complicated.

Most regulators have a barb for the gas line, so you stick the line on the barb, put a hose clamp of some sort on it, and tighten. For the MFL style QD's, you use a flare swivel fitting like this-

where the hose is once again clamped on to the barb, and then the MFL threads on to the QD. Pretty much any homebrew store, online or otherwise, should have the swivel fittings with a variety of barb sizes.
