New P/S Hose Look Too Loose?

This is a new hose that runs from the P/S pump to the Hydro Boost. It’s a pressure hose. To me it looks too loose but I have not been able to run the truck yet as I am doing some other turbo work. Maybe when there is pressure back in the line it will not move so much? I actually returned the one I bought from Advanced Auto, bought another one from Auto Zone and both were the same. Hooked the factory one back up and it too is loose like the new ones. Here is what’s stumping me, when I pulled the stock one off it wasn’t loose like this, now it is?

Am I missing something? The hose is as tight as it goes.

Drive the truck and see if it's leaking. If it is, there's something to deal with, if it's not, there isn't.

No leaks. After I started the truck and pressure was added from the pump it is tight just like before.....minus the leaking.
Thanks

That gasket usually comes already installed on the hose. This has been my experience anyway. I do however get my hoses from NAPA.

The gasket was already on the hose when I bought it. I picked up the hose from Auto Zone.
