Question fixing points of a wire?

I am building a complex device which has a fixed hose at one end and a moving end of which the hose is also fixed. I would like when the moveable device is translated up and down via its guide rods for the hose to move accordingly and stay fixed at its respected ends. Would i use a section of joints and then bind the hose to these joints for this to work correctly? and if so how do i attach the ends of the joints to the item to make them stay at those points?

Did you try to just parent it?
