2 Wrap the bottom of the hose with your nylon stockings. If the nylon is still in tact, consider sliding the nylon through the hose foot first. Pull nylon tightly so that the hose opening has a tight, smooth nylon covering.

3 Wrap rubber band around the hose to hold the nylon in place. Wrap rubber band around an area of the hose that is not flexible. The flexible part of the hose provides the air/suction and you don’t want to cut that off.
