Attaching Hose to Spray Head Faucet

I just moved into a new apartment in NYC. My kitchen sink uses a pullout faucet spray head (almost identical to this: DANCO Center Pullout Faucet Spray Head in Brushed Nickel-10409 - The Home Depot)

Has anyone out there had success with attaching a vacuum hose to this type of faucet? I can't imagine I'm the first person out there with this problem. Appreciate any and all advice.

I know what you're referring to. I have a similar issue with mine and tried in vain to come up with the proper fitting(s) to make it work. I'll admit I only searched the big box places and didn't venture into a "plumbing only" store, as I presumed by going to a specific store the price would be way more than its worth. I went the cheap method and got another section of hose, a coupler to connect the two, and ran it to the next available sink.

Go to your local Ace Hardware, and take the piece you are trying to attach. Mine was a Python, but you may be using something different. You will have to take the head off your spray nozzle, and be sure not to let it get sucked back up in there. I put a chip clip on mine. But the Home Depot/Lowes people will be of no help, if you can even find one. I will be glad to attach a picture of mine if you'd like.

yes, that would be great if you could attach a few pictures of your setup. I think the hookup is substantially similar for all of the vacuum hoses.

ID:	260317metal piece attaches the two together. But I use a chip clip, to keep the hose from disappearing back up into the faucet. You can get it back out, it is just a pain.

Has anyone tried to attach it to a bath tub spout?


Or this?
