Hmmm.... I forgot that little tidbit. ...It's true that some swivels flop around too much. The easy answer is to put some masking tape around the swivel part loosely. This constricts the swivel from moving around too much, but is loose enough that if you need to push it a little bit, it will give. I specifically use paint masking tape, because when I am done it pulls off the swivel without being a pain in the a$$, and doesn't leave any sticky residue on the swivel. I should have added that as a footnote to my original posting. I hope that helps. I do like the hose trick, too, I've done that with other things before. I hope it was helpful to put this here.
