    What size is that teeny tiny hex nut. The smallest I have is not small enough.

    Never mind: got it off.

    Here are the pics.
    1. Hose protector / VAD handle removed. Set screw reinserted so as not to lose the little bugger.
    2. Hose removed. I guess the exposed inset would be the "unfinished" aspect.
    3. 90-degree swivel installed.
    4. Hose installed.
    5. Side view of installed hose.
    6. Hose protector next to installed swivel. I can turn the VAD with just the silver part with bare hand and with glove (in my room, not tested uw) but wonder if I could cut the hose protector and reinstall 1/3rd to 1/2 of it over part of the swivel. On the other hand, if I should want to sell the reg the new buyer might want it restored to original state.

    For pic of original state, see https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NH0EMDG/
