Well it's a little late for that I guess? Even if they were in stock.
You can, of course, use your straight stem if you're careful. Use a big rubber band of strip of cloth for a gasket if you don't have the right size tube for the job?
yea it is late & i wouldn't even get it on time, i don't think. i find it weird i would think they would make more of it since its so much in demand, or at least have it in stock around 420!
i can use my straight stem but the whole connection is going to be extremely delicate & ill risk breaking my stem. i tried going to home depot to find a temporary tube to do the job, but they only had vinyl tubes & only sold 25 feet & nothing less. i don't know where i could find a silicone tube of about 1 feet. ill try the pet store near me, they wont be heat resistant but then again the solo stem towards the mouth doesn't really get that hot, hopefully it will do a temporary job for me.
