    I did the same, couldn’t find anything to fit it and chucked it out.

    This has me baffled. Could you post a photo or a link to someone selling this snake.

    If it’s a kitchen sink or bathroom tap you are trying to fit it to, depends on your tap of course, but I found it was almost impossible to get anything to work without flooding everywhere, they are not really designed for hoses. Might be easier to fit something to a flexible shower hose if you remove the head, but bit of a faff when you want a shower!
