Step 1: Tools and Materials

Well this is The pitiful list of tools and materials:) 1 Broken bicycle pump
                                                1 Utility knife
                                                1 Flathead screw driver
                                                1 Tiny hose clamp 

Step 2: Remove and Cut Hose

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

Now you are all done test it out and then fill somthing with air for example a car tire,a bicycle tire,a tree e.t.c. Hope this was useful to you and once again Thanks for reading!! Please like comment and vote!!

    Same idea to repair the other end. But you need that original metal piece/fitting that was attached to the hose. 1. Cut off the hose at the damaged section and slide that tiny round clamp onto it. 2. Remove the other end of the damaged hose, (now cut off), from the fitting. It should have a barbed end onto which you can slide your good hose onto and clamp it.

    Good fix! The barbed end had a compression clamp and I cut it off using a dremel tool. The rest was exactly as you described.
