Agree with all of the above. Plus, when the dock
neighbors "borrow" it, or it breaks, or I drop it overboard
, I just pull out another. I probably spend $3 a year on nozzles. Just not something I ever worry about.
On a related note, I picked up a couple of hanger clips somewhere. They screw into the end of the hose, and the nozzle screws into them. They have a hook that lets you hang the nozzle on a rail. I already broke one (dropped the hose onto a concrete dock) but I think I'll be buying
a bunch more:
PS: This thread motivated me to search for these. $11 for 2 on Amazon, free shipping
. $6 each at West Marine
. $3 each plus shipping
at Defender. But then: $2 each at Pep Boys. In stock at a local store. I see myself stocking up on these in the near future!
