Tube started coming out of my co-worker's printer. He ended up just cutting the tube slightly shorter and putting it into the coupling, then ended up replacing the extruder with a BMG, the hotend with a trianglelab V6 clone and the tube with genuine Capricorn.

Apparently the stock couplings/tube suck.

Well, it seems to be working. I'm about twice as far into the print as the last time it popped out. Of course saying that means it will pop out again any time now. Or more accurately, when I leave to go get some groceries for next week

Dug through my box o printed crap and found one of these, its a clip that is about double the thickness of the normal retaining clips.
Cleared the tip out and the titanium part of the heatsink, took the retaining ring out (which is somewhat easily possible) and inspected it with no concerns.
Slapped it together and it appears to be printing.

Gods alone know if it will finish properly. Got another hour or so.
