Not a bit.

Real gun control is having the ability to hit your target.

Thanks Jimbo
Since i have no kids at home and my wife claims I lost all my marbles years ago, LOL, I will have to look for another device to make this mod. Has anyone else found anything that works in place of a marble?

I've heard of the wirenut being used, but can't remember the color. I think it was a yellow one, but not sure.

The Mcgyver in me popped out.
I used Duct tape over the nipple the hose goes on.
This way if I ever want to reverse the mod, I won't be fishing for something stuffed in a tube.

Thanks for the feedback, This forum is awesome when you are looking for feedback or advice.
