Just get a piece of chrome or stainless tubing and cut it to the right size then cut a slot in it - open it up and slide it on the hose -i used the leg of an old table - much cheaper than £55 ! :D

I did exactly the same Malky!... a length of chrome wardrobe rail from B and Q in fact. Got loads left over and it costs pence!
There's always an alternative if you're not bothered about it being OEM..

I like non standard, especially if it does the job as well as oem, but saves money too.
Helps me to be a non-conformist, whatever that might be.... :lol:

Is non conformist another word for tight as a ducks posterior?
