I learned that the hose clamp makes life easier.

Also, relieving the pressure makes the snap fitting a snap!

The blue rope is use as the 3 point lifting handle.

The PVC is just there to support the pipe.

Very nice setup, I wouldn't imagine trying to reach 300 psi on a chamber that size with a shock pump :roll: :D
