how to get the hose on a gas regulator and BBQ

Found 8th Jun 2013
We've got a new gas bbq and I can't get the hose on the bayonet thing on either the BBQ or the regulator. It just goes about half way on which isn't enough to attach the clips. I have tried lubricating with fairy liquid, any other ideas please?

Hi Agnes, run the end of the hose under a hot tap, or pop the of the hose into some boiling water. After a 60 seconds or so it should be flexible enough to slide on easy
