Chicken Stick Replacement Tubing


       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
Hi there. I was wondering what you would replace the clear tubing on the end of a chicken stick with. It came used with dried and hard tubing on the end. I was thinking to replace it, but am unsure of what material to replace it with. It looks like clear fuel tubing of sorts, but just wanted to make sure. Thank you.

Rubber heater hose from your local auto parts store.

Re: Chicken Stick Replacement Tubing

head to home depot, lowes, rona etc with the stick and find one foot of clear flexible water tubing to slip over the existing dowel. Perhaps grab enough to replace it a few years down the road. There is also reinforced water line that is a bit tougher yet wont nick props in use.

Re: Chicken Stick Replacement Tubing

Old scraps of garden hose work well too.

You can use a heat gun to soften the hose to allow it to slip on more easily

Re: Chicken Stick Replacement Tubing

I use compressed air hose over a piece of copper tubing about 8 in long. The air hose has nice thick wall and does not harm the props . It can also be slightly curved for easier use.
