In sink soap dispenser mod

So I installed a new kitchen faucet and it came with a soap dispenser.  I instantly knew I wanted to make a bulk adapter for this.  First I found that ice maker line - 1/4" OD plastic tubing is a nice fit on the original soap dispenser straw.  But to make sure it was leak proof I used a piece of 1/4" ID tubing.  This piece barely fit even after letting it sit in boiling water for a few seconds.  I made the ice maker line slide in as far as I could into the straw and made sure the other piece made a good seal.  If yours doesn't just use a few hose clamps.  I was lucky when I got my refill of hand soap that the normal hose is just the right size to allow the ice maker line slide in.  To make sure it didn't create a vacuum,  I drilled 2x 3/16" holes in the lid.

Same mod, But in the bathroom:

Had to do a little grinding to get it to fit.
