A Must For Your HP Hose

By TomG

Soak in a pot of hot water for ease of installation on hose

Hose protectors keep your hose rubber jacket from pulling loose from the crimped metal fitting. Once the hose jacket has separated and exposes the breaded hose inner liner you will start to have a hose leaks. Hose protectors that are not vented or do not have a ribbed interior surface retain water and promote corrosion of hose fittings and hose rot. Protect your hose from these problems with this vented hose protector. Use one on every hose attached to your first-stage regulator to prolong the life of all your life support fittings. Hose Protector is available in multiple colors and made from durable vinyl. The Hose Protector is vented for easy water drainage and rapped drying.

A Must For Your HP Hose

By TomG

Soak in a pot of hot water for ease of installation on hose

 

Works as described and looks great

By Brian79z

Nice colored markings to know it's you in the water or your regs on the beach.

 

Best looking hose protectors!

By MICHAEL S.

I don't know what people don't like about these, they look good and serve their function. I use these on all of my hoses on all my reg set ups. I've never had a problem with them.

 

Good for low pressure hoses

By Beth

These hose protectors work really well on LP hoses but they would not fit over the ends of my HP hoses even after soaking in hot water to make them more flexible.

 

Tight but nice

By rpalmer01

This is a great product for the price. I bought it because of the drainage it has after use and cleaning. It also stay put. I would recommend that you heat it up in hottt water and use a little silicone grease to help the install.

 

Nice product..not so easy to install.

By EDWARD M.

All around, a good quality product. Yes.....they are somewhat hard to get on. Immersion in to a HOT glass of water and some stretching of the narrow end will help tremendously.

 

Nothing fancy.......just a protector.

By EDWARD M.

Just what I needed. The last ones lasted 12 years. Just a tiny !!!! bit of pure silicone lube made the installation a snap.

 

Great hose protectors!

By ROBERT F.

I'm really surprised how nice these are for this price. As others have pointed out, you'll need to heat them up with hot water...but they stay in place and look better than most of the supposedly higher quality protectors.

 

Great Hose Protection

By MARK C.

Good way to protect your hoses and identify your tanks on a crowded boat also ID your dive buddy in the water. Use hot water for application and stretch it a little with your pinky finger to get it over the nut.

 

As advertised

By m

The only problem I encountered was getting these was getting them on (it may be just me). That was solved by warming the hose protectors in a water bath on the stove.

 

Good product vs. cost

By Nitro

Once again I am greatly satisfied with Leisure Pro. I have placed several orders with them and have never been disappointed. They are the lowest cost around and their shipping is super fast. I would highly recommend them to all my friends.

 

Identification Made Easy

By Emerald D.

Function added of being a little more protected and as well as indicating an emergency octo as an added bonus.

 

Meh..

By Brandon W.

I'm not that impressed with these. they don't really fit tight enough where it matters to provide good rigidity to the hose at the swage. Plus, they are pretty hard to get on without a tool. I tried hot water, which helped, but could not get them over the larger hex on my reg hose. I do like the idea of how they are slotted to allow flushing out with fresh water and not trapping water under the sleeve, but the other shortcomings doesn't make up for that IMHO. I'll probably have to have the dive shop change out all my hose protectors with the thicker units.

 

Too tight and difficult to use

By Beth

I knew these fit tight when I bought them and followed the directions to loosen them up with hot water. However, even after that, and I did get them on,it was more trouble than it was worth. Perhaps my hoses are too big but they are standard hoses as far as I know. I would look for something else.

Questions & Answers

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
Celso C  for protection
Leland H  price was right
LARRY L  Got the yellow one for my pony. Have the pony in all yellow so it's easy for a buddy to recognise.
JOHN O  I wanted to stiffen up a used reg hose on my pony tank.
ERIC V  TO PROTECT MY PRIMARY HOSE
Shopper  I keep reading reviews that say these are hard to get on, even after soaking in hot water. Any tips to avoid frustration?
HIMANSHU G  Petroleum Jelly helps!
ANDREW S  The best is Hot Water and try some silicone spray or WD-40 make sure ends are covered so it dosent get in the hose.
MICHAEL S  Soak it in hot water, apply silicone to the end of the hose. It's really not that hard to put on. Also, these are purely cosmetic and unnecessary, especially if you use braided hoses.
MICHAEL W  I put them in hot water for a few minutues. I put a small amount of silicone grease on the hose fitting and the rest is elbow grease. They have to go on tight or they won't stay where you want them.
DERRICK C  The bottom line is they do work. They feel a little bit more like plastic than rubber and I did install them on my regulator at the time. If I were going to make the purchase again. I would spring for the little more expensive/ better kind!
bdm b  Is it suitable for Blue Reef flex slim hoses (SKU: BLRHPHK, SKU: BLRLPFH, SKU: BLRFHBC27)?
KEITH S  sorry i can not answer that do not have that type of hose sorry
RUSSELL B  I don't know. I have only installed on stock ScubaPro regulator and Genesis gauge hoses.
DEEP S  No. This hose protector is designed to fit on standard LP and HP hoses, not the newer style "flex" hoses like Miflex. New "slim" hoses would not fill the hose protector and prevent it from moving up and down the hose. However, the larger end of the protector is designed to "lock on" the end of the hose, and you may find that is enough to hold the hose in place. This wouldn't do much good as far as protection goes, but it might suffice if you're just looking for the "look" of the protectors. Bottom line: I would not recommend this product - or any hose protectors for that matter - on a Miflex-style "slim" hose.
