                                                1 Utility knife
                                                1 Flathead screw driver

All you have to do here is pull the hose off then cut off the cracked section. A picture says a million words :)

Step 3: Attach the hose and clamp

First thing to do here is slide the hose clamp (pre tightened to the size of the hose) over the hose and shove the hose onto the hose barb (the pointy thing you pulled it off of). Then making sure the hose covering is under the clamp start tightening the clamp (over the barb). Once again a picture says a million words :)

Step 4: Fill something with air
