AC Outworld Portals and Small Vinyl Tubing Do Not Connect

Dear Forums,
When I received my ‘All You Need’ Lasius Hybrid Gear Pack everything was connecting correctly except the AC Outworld white plastic portal connectors. When I tried pushing the 3/8" Small Vinyl Tubing into the Outworld Portal it didn't fit. The tubing loosely went inside until about halfway when it could no longer fit.

This is the shared folder that includes photos of the Small Vinyl Tubing and the Outworld Portals. https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B1Qxlk5Mg0erNW11dFRwTmVvYWc?usp=sharing

On the AntsCanada website it shows the Small Vinyl Tubing pushing through the Outworld Portals.

Try soaking it into hot water to soften it up. Then put it in, as it was most likely made like that so it wouldn't come off.

THANK YOU SO MUCH.

I have been trying to fit this tube through this hole for 4 days! I only recently asked for help.

All I did was soak it in really hot water for some time and then use a dentist pick to bring in the sides that were getting caught on the edges.
