Hookah Accessories: Everything You Need to Know and More

Hookah Accessories: Everything You Need to Know | Hookah Vault

​​Hookah accessories, let’s be honest we have all been at a point where we have forgotten one or more parts of our hookah setup. Was it the bowl gasket? No problem, nothing a wet paper towel won’t fix. Didn’t pack the Provost for that vacation, no worries foil is sold everywhere! Can’t find a poker? Toothpicks always work in a pinch. The question is how do we go from a casual hookah smoker to a ready for any hookah situation that might arise hookah enthusiasts? Well we got good news for you, Hookah Vault is ready to take you to the next level of shisha preparedness.  

For the casual hookah smoker it may be a daunting task when it comes to choosing the right hookah accessories. With all the HMD’s (heat management devices) to the endless options for hookah coal burners, one may not know where to even begin. Over the years we have seen gimmicky products pushed onto hookah enthusiasts, but today we put an end to that. Whether a product is in the budget range or considered premium, we will only offer products that we can fully support and stand behind. You may notice multiple brands in a product category. This is so we can fully meet every customer’s hookah needs. Remember if you still have any questions by the end of this article, we are only a short message away

Hoses, Handles, and Mouthpieces

Arguably one of my favorite parts of a hookah setup, let’s talk hoses, handles, and mouthpieces.  Whether you buy a complete hose and handle set or ‘build your own hose, it’s important to always use a washable hookah hose. We don’t see it as often however, cardboard hoses with wires that rusted were a trend at one point. We recommend silicone tubing when purchasing a hose along with whichever hookah hose handle feels right to you! Let’s also not forget to use a mouthpiece when smoking hookah with friends or when out and about at your local hookah lounge.

B2 Silicone Mouthpieces - $5.99

B2 Silicone Mouth Tip

These mouth tips are a great and very affordable accessory to carry around when smoking with friends or at hookah lounges. These are a much better alternative to plastic mouthpieces that are single use and reduce plastic waste. The B2 silicone mouthpieces are perfect for almost any hose. These tips wrap over your handle allowing you to use any hose without actually touching the tip which prevents the spread of germs. These hookah tips are reusable. Just wash them with soap and water and let them dry. Each package comes with an assortment of seven different colors, so feel free to share with hookah friends.

Tangiers Mouthpiece with Steel Lanyard - $59.99

The Tangiers mouthpiece is a unique accessory that is functional while also being stylish. These hookah tips are designed to be inserted into the hose and fit most hoses. Mouthpieces are an important accessory while smoking with friends as it helps keep things hygienic. On top of making a fashion statement these reusable tips are a great way to reduce the spread of plastic waste. The Tangiers Mouthpiece comes with a steel lanyard and has a derby hat charm attached to it. It is similar to the type of hat that the now passed owner of Tangiers, Eric used to wear. You will see a famous saying engraved on each piece: “Carry On” -Eric Hoffman

Thunder Hoses V3 - $17.99

The Thunder Hose V3 is one of the best washable hoses on the market. Thunder V3 comes with an all black plastic hose and hard plastic color ends, they also attach and detach for easy cleaning. The colorful hose ends are vibrant and look awesome attached to any hookah. This version is the same as previous versions. The only difference is new color options. Many hookah smokers also enjoy the lightweight feel of the hose and makes for an effortless smoke. 

B2 Hose - $39.99

The B2 Hose is a simplistic design made out of quality aluminum and comes with a food grade silicone hose. The heel of the hose (the part that connects to the hookah) was created specifically for the B2 hookah; the hose comes with a plastic O-ring which will fit inside most B2 V3, B2 F-22, B2 Reaper, and the B2 SS-Inox hose ports. This means you can do away with having to deal with pesky hose gaskets when pairing your B2 hose with a B2 hookah!

Flaca Hose - $42.99

The HJ Flaca Hose is the thinner version of the HJ Knurl Hose. The handle is made of food grade aluminum and includes the handle, silicone hose, and hose adapter. Don’t let this sleek design fool you for it is heavy duty and very durable! The Flaca hose is perfectly paired with the SAOCCA hookah and only needs a hose gasket when pairing it with other hookahs.

Knurl Hose V2 - $49.99

The heavyweight hose comes in at 2 lbs fully assembled and 75 inches long. It includes a fully washable silicone hose to prevent any ghosting of flavors. The handle is made from food grade aluminum and comes as a complete set. 

Cyril Hose Handle - $11.99

Arguably one of the most affordable reusable hoses on the market, the Cyril hose works just as great as other hoses on the market while being able to fit any hookah smokers budget. Made out of aluminum and coming in at 12 inches in length along with an assortment of handle colors to choose from. This hookah hose comes with the handle and heel leaving you to pair it with any color silicone you prefer.

Steamulation Hose Handle - $59.99

Steamulation Hose Handle

The Steamulation Carbon Mouthpiece Black Blue is made of stainless steel and carbon. The mouthpiece is refined by carbon elements with blue fiber inside. Every mouthpiece is characterized by excellent workmanship. This is just for the handle and doesn’t include the silicone or the hose heel. 

Heat Management Devices (HMD’s)

We know heat management devices are an integral part of any hookah smokers setup. We carry a handful of different HMD’s that have many different unique functions and come in at all price points. Check back next week for our full breakdown of all the heat management devices we carry here at Hookah Vault! If you would like to take a peak at them feel free to click here.

Hookah Trays

Long gone are the days of having to find that perfect tray to match your hookah setup. We will look back fondly on the days of pairing a Khalil Mamoon tray with a Regal Hookah. We see most modern hookah brands leaning towards providing customers with complete setups making it easier to have a matching set.

Regal Crown Tray - $44.99

Regal Hookah began manufacturing hookahs back in 2010, and after five years of being on the market, they released the first official Regal Hookah Flat Tray making many customers happy. Then in 2017 Regal Hookah introduced the Regal Crown Tray, which was inspired by the Regal Crown logo and Regal Purge cap. Both the Crown and Flat Tray are made out of anodized aluminum and are compatible with the V3 Regal.

Alpha Hookah Tray - $29.99

Shika hookahs and trays are all hand-crafted in Egypt with emphasis on the hand etched details you'll find on every piece. 

Coal Burners

I’ve been known to light my coals in a campfire when camping, but ideally we should all be using a hookah coal burner! It is preferable to light your hookah charcoal outdoors or in a very ventilated area, and by using an easily transportable coal burner you can contain any ash to one area while also making clean up easy.

Fumari Coal Burner - $19.99

Fumari’s single electric burner quickly and evenly heats your charcoal, now leaving your stove less used than it already was. This charcoal burner features a coiled heating element, carrying handles, temperature control knob, 24 inch power cord, and a convenient power indicator light.

From Pharaohs comes their handheld charcoal baskets which allows easy transferring from your burner to your setup without the fear of dropping your charcoals. It is capable of holding twelve flats or nine cubes and is made out of stainless steel.

Hookah Grommets

Gasket or grommet, that is the question? The interesting thing about language is that the meaning of words are constantly changing, so don’t come for me when I refer to hookah gaskets as hookah grommets! Grommets are pretty standard, and they make the different parts of a  hookah air tight while also keeping things connected and in place. 

Bowl Grommets - $0.99

Mod-styled bowl grommet are used to secure your bowl with your stem. This material is perfect as it does not slip off and grips quite well with almost all bowls. Rubber grommets secure your bowl to your stem preventing air leaks, rattling, and slippage.

Hookah Tongs

Hookah tongs are an essential accessoriesfor using a hookah.Why? Because you simply you can’t smoke without them! I have seen a fellow hookah knock a coal off their hookah only to panic because someone took their tongs. Save your fingertips and possibly your carpet.  Make sure to always have enough tongs to go around when having friends over to smoke hookah.

AOT Flip Tongs - $29.99

The first ever apple on top tongs are available. The Flip tongs are just that. When you grip the charcoal with the point, they automatically flip your charcoal.

Hookah Pokers

The early 2000’s called, and they want their toothpicks back! Will a toothpick work to poke holes in the foil? Yes. Is there a better alternative to toothpicks? Also, yes. What makes these heavy duty foil pokers better you ask? For one they are reusable. Secondly they are sharper making it much easier to slice through that heavy duty foil while also making it less likely to have to retighten the foil after poking your holes.

Hookah Mats

Next on our list is hookah vase (or base) mats. Some accessories may not be necessary to the direct function of packing a bowl or setting up a hookah. However, these types of accessories still have a place on our list and for good reason. Hookah mats are not only for aesthetic purposes but are also very helpful when smoking on a rough surface. It’s almost objectionable to invest in an Egermann hookah base to then place it directly on the ground. I speak from experience and now am the sad owner of a roughly scratched up Egermann hookah base. Learn from my past mistakes and invest in a hookah mat even if it is just for the looks.

Tangiers Base Mat - $39.99

Stop worrying about your hookah and start packing for your next adventure.

Hookah Foil

Hookah foil is almost always a must when smoking, unless of course you are using certain heat management devices. Over the years hookah smokers have evolved.  Long gone are the days of using regular foil bought at your local grocery store. No need to waste that thin foil because you are trying to get it drum tight! Today, we enthusiasts have options when it comes to hookah foil and plenty of them. Do you still want to rip your own foil, or maybe pick how many microns of thickness you prefer? With all these options it’s up to you to find the best hookah foil for your smoking needs!

Molasses Catchers

Molasses catchers are a great accessory for any hookah enthusiast, especially for those that can’t stand seeing the water in their hookah base get dirty! A molasses catcher is, as the name suggests, there to catch molasses which escapes from the tobacco as it’s being heated before it gets into the downstem of the hookah. This on the one hand assists with keeping the hookah clean and on the other hand makes it possible to not have to constantly change out the water in the hookah vase. There are many different brands that have produced molasses catchers. However, we have kept it simple with these two options! 

Steamulation Carbon Molasses Catcher - $64.99

The Steamulation Carbon Molasse Catcher not only gives your hookah a beautiful visual feature but also helps to clean your hookah by catching molasses. Material is V2A stainless steel and carbon.
