Hose Clamps (77)
Connect tubes in plumbing systems to a specific fitting by using heavy-duty hose clamps. Many clamps are stainless steel so can withstand heavy impact. Versatile specialized tools include tube cutters for precise customization, and adjustable slip nut wrenches to firmly fasten clamps. The rust-resistant material makes plumbing clamps ideal for damp areas while ensuring a watertight setup.
Browse multiple options with dozens of fitting clamps to accommodate medium and large projects. Most plumbing and hose clamps come with screws and clamping bands to allow for quick and simple installation. The adjustable feature makes it easy to attach plumbing fittings to tubes of different sizes for convenience. The clamping force varies depending on the specific models to accommodate different projects.
Most models include a durable captive screw to ensure a firm connection to a barb or a wire rack. Other options include smaller clamps without the captive screw, suitable for tubing with a 0.5-inch diameter or smaller. This screw serves as a worm drive, ensuring that the band will tighten around the piping unit. The functional hose clamp design offers a quick way to tighten or loosen them when installing or removing clamps.
Incorporating a pair of ear clamps on a wire is practical for attaching wastewater piping in the household or at work. Another way to use them is to transmit small amounts of power between two shafts, which is a common technique in laboratories. In general, these plumbing supplies work best with moderate pressure due to the lightweight design. Many agricultural businesses use them as well to prevent corrosion and maximize product yield. Select clamps have dimples to create a spring effect when the diameter of a tube changes due to heat or mechanical conditions.
