I have done this also, however, last time I just split the grommet. So much easier and you can not tell it was cut. Seems to be sealed well enough. No air leaks.
If you donít split the grommet, a heat gun on a low setting helps soften it so you can massage it over the fittings a bit easier.

FYI. I pulled my hoses (older rubber with a Service life) and made hard lines. It is a right of passage to make these lines on a 6. Hose weighs more (a lot more, like a few ounces ), May have a Service life, and, most importantly, its cheating.
