    Default Rear ballast bag connection

    Filling up for surfing and my ballast came loose spilling water everywhere. Notice that the quick connect elbow that a piece was busted off. So I need one of these

    Now I noticed to install that I need this

    My question is what size will I need and do I really need the tool

    Default Rear ballast bag connection

    Why don't you just get a hoseclamp from Lowes? I just did my hole project with those. Sure the crimp ones look nicer but are a PITA to remove if you ever need to.

    I second the hose clamps. Quick and easy to disconnect for whatever reason later.

    Is this a common problem!?!? I just installed 2 1100lb bags in the back and I didn't even think about something like that happening... that would not be fun!!

    Mine happens every once in a while, I also noticed the back panel of the ballast location has had two screws loose, don't no if this was causing it

    Second lowes or Home Depot for the the ss clamps, bought lst of them for my upgrades, use black electrical tape around the bags.

    I used the pinch clamps around the bags and regular hose clamps everywhere else. Old end nippers make a good tool for pinch clamps. I like the zip tie idea.
