Installing In Line Glass Bubble Counter

This is a really stupid question, but how do you guys easily install an in line glass bubble counter? I've broken two already. Is there a trick to doing it?

Be careful. Some people find it useful to heat up the tubing in hot water first.

Installing In Line Glass Bubble Counter

I just took the end of the tubing to a flame and then put the glass in.

Seems to have worked out alright.
