the cricket comes with barbs - you just push the hose on and clamp it down.

little hose clamps - you can get the strongest ones at an auto parts store. Take the hose with you and get ones that are big enough to go around the hose with some extra so you can use it easily.

I think my DH had to change the size of my hose to transfer from the mega minor to the Cricket. Actually I'm sure he did.

I also love my Cricket although I almost set fire to my vent hood the first time I cranked it up!

My minor and cricket are both the same size.

I don't have my cricket yet (hopefully it's being born sometime this week!) but I spoke with Wally about the connections and am paying for them to include a couple of 12" sections of hose with clamps to go on the torch side - and with standard "B" fittings on the other end. This way I can use my current hoses when the cricket arrives and won't have to get a different set, or cut my current ones.

I don't know how much they are charging for it - will find out after I get the invoice I guess!
