    If its a Burley I used to repair them with the hose from fire extinguishers.


    Never used to break after that and the hose is cheap too.

    Where did you get hold of hose?

    I need to repair the flexible towing hitch on out child trailer. The ‘flex’ is enabled by a piece of hose inside a spring. The spring is 14mm ID. I have snapped the hose twice, so I need to beef-up this connection with something that is less likely to tear where the bolts go through.

    I was thinking of the reinforced rubber stuff that fanbelts are made of. Any idea where I’d source 14mm diameter circular section stuff? (or similar)…


    I could hazard a guess

    See if there are any fluid power suppliers in your area – Google “hydraulic” or “pneumatic” and if they have a trade counter, go and see if you can blag an offcut of hose.

    My local scrapyard has all the old fire extinguishers from Chubb sat waiting to be bought, We have loads knocking around which we buy for a fiver a time and use them for water fights in the summer 😉

    Make sure you buy them with schraeder valves so you can refill them regularly 😉
