I'm glad you got it- I should have given my pic a title. :lol:
Oh, I got it...

You had a small but firm one in the pic. Just the way I like them. Easier to manipulate and takes less dope to keep it in place. :slapme:

A neat plastic sheath will keep them clean in the filthiest places.

It's real important to remember to be careful handling a hose while crimping and clamping. You certainly don't want to damage it.

I'm not sure "crimp and clamp" are terms many would enjoy... :doh

The hose needs to fit like a glove and secured if it is going to function properly and sometime that requires a clamp to tighten things down so that all works effectively.

That's why you have lips...

exactly! The ferrule lips must be aligned with the hose.

. If the hose does not have a straight end on one end, the ends will need to have the proper “clocking” in relation to each other so that they line up with the fittings without putting a twist or kink in the hose. Do not attempt to adjust without first loosening nipple hex.
Then it is time to pressure test the hose and inspect for cleanliness. If you don’t pressure test and clean now, you will eventually install one or more hoses without doing it at all. Ideally, pressure test should be at least one and a half times the hose’s maximum rated operating pressure, preferably double. However, since most people do not have access to a hydraulic pressure tester, testing with shop air (100 PSI minimum) will probably be adequate. Either put the hose under water or spray it with a soapy water solution and watch for bubbles. Clean the inside of a hose assembly by flushing with clean solvent then blowing out with air.
