- wraping the hose with tape
- cutting it off with a cutting wheel
- taking the tape off and trying to put the cap on

What's the trick here ?
Same process here except when it comes to sliding on the fitting. I have 2 rubber bushings I put on either side of the fitting and snug it down in vice. Start inserting one side and then take a small flat head screw driver and push the braided pieces in while pushing or turning the hose. So much than tearing you fingers up.
