Hose clamps are easy-to-use products that help you easily and reliably attach any two hoses. They feature an all-metal construction with a zinc plating finish, allowing it to endure any climate and a spring-loaded design for fastening hoses of different sizes.
Hose clamps are a convenient solution to a variety of common clamping needs. Use them on your garden hose, HVAC lines, and more. They can even be used to secure pipes and hoses in tight spaces. Made from copper, steel, or brass, these multi-purpose clamps can be used in water pumps and marine applications. We carry hose clamps in a variety of sizes and styles including adjustable hose clamps, band style hose clamps, screw band hose clamps, strap style hose clamps, snap band hose clamps, compression-type hose clamps, and more.
How are different hose clamps used?
Hose clamps are most widely used for connecting hoses, tubes and pipes that form a closed conduit system. The adjustable design of Hose Clamps allows them to grip a large variety of diameters from 3/4″ to 25″. They can also be used to clamp other items such as electrical nozzles, or valve systems. Hose clamps are used for a number of purposes such as connecting the expansion tank and radiator or for fastening a hose to an adjacent part.
The two major types of hose clamps are the band-style type and the worm gear style. The band-style hose clamp, which is the more common type, is made from round steel bands that have an adjustable screw interposed between the ends. A worm gear hose clamp consists of a cylindrical set screw that is placed into grooves around a nut. The round shank of the screw is placed into one end of a cylinder.
How does a hose clamp stop a leak?
The very best tool for preventing a leak in a garden hose is an inexpensive, plastic hose clamp. No tool on the market equals its ability to stop a leak in a matter of seconds with no tools required.
Hose Clamps are used to stop leaks in hoses and pipes, like water and air. They’re also used to join two objects together. The clamp itself creates pressure on the hose or pipe. The way that the clamp does this is actually quite simple. First, it wraps around whatever it’s supposed to be securing. Next, you put a screw through the central hole of the clamp. Next, you tighten the screw until it touches whatever it’s securing to form one complete unit. That’s it!
Since the invention of the hose clamp in the early 20th century, they have grown to be a staple of any trade that uses hoses. Their diversity in function means they can be used on everything from small pipes to large tanks and everything in between. However, no matter which style you choose, all hose clamps share one common goal: to keep your hoses secure while preventing them from over-tightening.
The self-adjusting Hose Clamp can be adapted to any size hose and remains fully adjustable. The unique design allows the Hose Clamp to float along with the hose during clamping, resulting in a tighter seal. The Hose Clamp is designed with flat bands that are permanently attached to the barrel from end to end, ensuring that it will not move or lose its position during clamping.
