Begin by identifying the broken or torn section of the hose. You will need to determine which hose mender is appropriate for the damaged section.
Cut away the damaged section of hose, making sure the cuts are straight and even, else the mender will not provide a full seal and leaks may occur.
Using a Phillips screwdriver, remove the screws from the mender and extract the barbed fitting.
Insert the barb fitting into the hose. It may be necessary to warm the hose in the sun or use soapy water to get the proper fit.
Position the clamps over the barb. Make sure the fitting is facing the right direction or it will not provide a full seal and leaks may occur.
Fasten the screws with a screwdriver and test the mended hose for leaks.
