Is it that your pump hose is a bit short and jerking during pumping so they loosen?
My taper adaptors over the years (apart from a copy or two that were poor) have been tight enough so that when put in firmly (a slight twist as you push seems to help) they were quite hard to pull out if your hands were cold/wet.
Yes the hose can move around while adding air and I make sure it stays put, I don't see no taper on my insert and no matter how hard I push it in it does not stay in hard, falls out with ease, I think my insert is just a bad insert, it came with the foot pump when I bought the boat new so I suspect its a cheap after market from what you mention about your inserts, its time to improve my insert or make a hose like Max did.
Still think Zodiac should have used the twist in type..
