Cut your air compressor hose above and below the damaged area using the appropriate cutting tool. Discard the damaged section.
Check the ends of each cut hose section for clean, square cuts. Trim as necessary to even out each end.
Slide a hose clamp over each end of your two hose sections.
Insert one hose end, then the other, over the brass coupling provided in the air compressor repair kit.
Secure the hose ends to the coupling by tightening the hose clamps.
