Ok, it MUST be the piece that is on the regular tubing.
On the original tube I have, one end fits into my FF mask
The other end is plain and I just slip it on the back of the machine. Until its tight. It doesn't need to slip into anything in particular but just slipped on period.
On this new heated hose, it has something on the end that doesn't fit into my mask but goes on the back of the machine.
There is a black rubber thing below where you put it on. You take off the rubber thing, slip this on, turn it clockwise until it snaps into something that was original covered by the black rubber thing I took off.
The other end is plain.
It doesn't fit into my FF mask.
There isn't anything for it to clip onto
At first I assumed the piece had fallen off somewhere and spent 20 minutes looking hi and low in my bedroom for some clear tube thingy.
Finally realized it had to be the end that was on the original hose so I gently pulled on it but it didnt come off.
Again, I don't want to pull on it and break anything unless I KNOW for sure that is meant to come off as it seems to need some real pressure to pull it off.
Sos is that meant to come off that tubing and put it in the other tubing so I can then attach it to my FF?
It seems the most logical explanation but i don't want to rip it off in case i am wrong.
I don't seem to have any really good booklets on those few things telling me if it is a part of the tube and i have somehow lost a piece to my mask or that mask piece is just presently attached to that older hose
Sorry if this question appears rather lame as i suspect it might. Its a bit frustrating trying to get into a routine, now Twice and Twice I have had to stop for several weeks. NOW, TONIGHT I FINALLY can start and don't envision any more interruptions and i now don't want to have to waste time locating some missing piece, or worse, LOL, break the needed piece trying to take it off something else, if its not meant to come off and then be out another few days + ;-)
Quote:The tube is the same on both ends.
ok THAT confirms it. It is the piece and for some reason its attached to that tube rather than my mask so I will go pull it off and hope I don't break anything
