    Hello all, not been on for a while, looking for someone whom know anything about the kobold/facelift back packs as I have one and the thick hose part that comes out of the connection part and goes into the actualy back pack has a split.

    I cna not actually find anywher online that sells this small hose part that fits in to the back pack. I have added a picture link below to a back pack and its the hose part in he picture that I need.

    The hose with the screw part that tightens up to the back and the other end goes into a connection part, I dotn no what the name of this hose part is called and can nto seem to find it online. Mine came all set up and done and connected to the pole.

    Really appriciate any advice where I can get one to buy as really need it the tape is not going to holf for long lol

    Take the part to local plumbing supplies place and ask them
    They may have something the same size as it is just a basic connector

    Just had a look for you and the yellow one is the one i don't have another of or i would have posted it
    The hose end just pokes into the hole and then the connector screws on to hold it there

    Yeah thats right its the other end alo i need as I can not work out by looking at mine if the connection is built in or have to slot it in to it, i ahve tried to take it off but can not it plugs in to an orange calber connector and then in to a metal small black connector which the 5mm hose pushes onto. need the whole parts reall so i can just slip my exsiting hose on to. Thanks dave though.

    I dont no why these parts are ready to buy anywhere tbh, pain in the ass trying to find them, gonna ring the place up brought it from again and just ask for the lot, gonna have to wait a few days probably, just hope the tape lasts over the split or I am buggered. Lesson is get some spares in....

    Hope all is going good for you mate, its rolling really well my end and am doing well, so chuffed I am sticking it out as loving it!!! Remeber comign on here talking start up advice, feeling part of the movement now lol :) :)

    Cut the hose before the split..go to plumbers and say you want a double ended connector..take the cut off bit with you..get one 5mm one end and whatever the black hose is..probably 5mm too with a bit of a dunk in the kettle to soften it
    That way you just push both hoses together

    I am doing ok Scottie..got it coming out my ears now..and loving the stick waggling (well it's a nice change after 26 yrs on ladders)

    Get one of these scottie
