Take those rubbery pieces off the end so your hose looks like this. The hair spray won't ignite, it will help to slide the hose back on and seal it on better. Just spray the inside of the hose at the very ends, you don't need to fill the thing with hairspray fumes
Your stock clamps are called worm clamps, which cannot be tightened as well as t-bolt clamps. I'll attach two images of what they look like...

Getting an aftermarket hose will help it fit better, but don't get one if you plan on getting a new TMIC in the near future.
