    And what about length of hose, are there any stipulations?

    That depends on the retailer. Many will give you the length you require but 2metres is usually more than adequate

    Should be all it needs.
    the nozzle part is barbed and the gas is at extremely low pressure anyway (50mb or 1/8th psi) so shouldnt come off.

    I use nothing on mine, just the hose pushed over the barb, and it doesnt move or leak.
