How do you remove a flat hose clamp? (video)
How much pressure can a hose clamp hold?
Older hydraulic systems were designed to run pressures up to 1,500 psi, while newer systems can build pressures to 6,000 psi. via
What is a worm drive hose clamp?
Worm Drive Hose Clamps, also know as Worm Gear Hose Clamps, are a metal band clamp. They feature a helical-threaded screw, or worm gear, that is housed in the clamp. Worm Gear Clamps provide a hi-torque clamp that prevents hose connections from slacking, and they also prevent leakage. via
What are jubilee clips used for?
Jubilee® 'O' Clips are widely used for maintenance and OEM applications. Mainly used on air, fluid, gas and steam lines and also suitable for low pressure hydraulic applications. Sometimes affectionately referred to as “Lemon Clips” due to their shape and also referred to as double ear clips and 2-ear clips. via

What size hose clamps do I need?
To determine the size needed, install the hose (or tubing) on the fitting or pipe (which expands the hose), measure the outside diameter of the hose, then select a clamp that accommodates that diameter in about the middle of its range. via
What is a Type F hose clamp?
Standard Worm Drive Hose Clamps SAE Type "F"
The clamps typically have a 1/2" wide band and a 5/16" slotted hex head screw. Not recommended for use with soft/silicone hoses or tubes. via
What size is a #8 hose clamp?
Great for general purpose jobs in automotive and industrial settings, this #8 Standard Breeze Power Seal® Stainless Steel Hose Clamp has an effective diameter range of 1/2"-29/32". Made with a 1/2" band and a 5/16" slotted stainless steel hex screw. via
Do stainless steel hose clamps rust?
Any hose clamp used on a boat should be made from high-grade stainless steel to resist corrosion; zinc-plated clamps or those made from plain steel will rust and fail. Keep in mind, though, that not all stainless steel is the same. Clamp components should be manufactured from 316 stainless steel as a minimum. via
How do you measure a hose clip?
Only measure the outside diameter of the hose when it has been pushed onto the end of the pipe fitting, as often there will be expansion at this point. Once the outside diameter has been measured, check the dynamic range of the hose clamp to ensure that it can be tightened to the correct size. via
Can you put two hose clamps together?
Double hose clamps won't do any good, and can actually be detrimental, if they are not clamping anything but air. Please be sure your hose clamps are clamping what they are intended to clamp. via
How does a worm gear clamp work?
The Drip Cap
Match the type and size of the clamp to the diameter of the hose to be secured. The worm gear screw meshes with the slots in the band to draw it tighter around the hose as the worm gear screw is turned. via
What are pipe clips called?
Pipe clamps, or pipe fixings, are best defined as the support mechanism for suspended pipes, whether that be horizontal overhead or vertical, adjacent to a surface. via
How do I stop my hose clamp from leaking?
If tightening the screw of single steel hose clamps at each of the T-connections doesn't stop the leak, try loosening each clamp, sliding it inwards closer to the tee, thus making room to add a second parallel hose clamp. Then tighten the two hose clamps snugly at each of the three legs of the tee. via
How much pressure will a barbed fitting hold?
Barbed style fittings are limited to relatively low pressures (usually below 150 or 125 psi) due to the limitations of the soft and flexible tubing. via
How much pressure can a rubber fuel hose hold?
Working pressure is not relevant, but wire-inserted hose can withstand 50-85 psi, depending on diameter. High-pressure fuel hose for clamp-type fuel-injection systems is also available. This fuel hose is SAE 30R9-rated and uses a fluoro elastomer inner liner that will withstand up to 180 psi and 300 degrees. via
Can you use rubber hose fuel injection?
SAE J30R7 is carburetor rated fuel hose and should only be used in limited runs up to 50 psi. SAE J30R9 is fuel Injection rated fuel hose which can handle up to 100 PSI. via
Why is it called a worm clamp?
The term worm drive is reference to the helical-threaded screw or worm gear housed within the clamp. As the screw is turned it meshes with the slots in the band and tightens the clamp. The design provides a hi-torque clamp which prevents hose connections from loosening or leaking. via
What are ear clamps?
Ear clamps are a fairly simple device for connecting a hose to a pipe or a fitting like a hose barb connection. The clamp is a metal band with a protruding “ear,” the sides of which are forced together to tighten the ring around a hose. via

What do jubilee clips look like?
A Jubilee Clip is a genericised brand name for a worm drive hose clamp, a type of band clamp, consisting of a circular metal band or strip combined with a worm gear fixed to one end. It is designed to hold a soft, pliable hose onto a rigid circular pipe, or sometimes a solid spigot, of smaller diameter. via
Why is it called Jubilee clip?
The company was founded in 1921 by Commander Lumley Robinson after he patented the worm drive hose clip, which he named 'Jubilee Clip'; although we don't know where he got the name from. Jubilee® remains a registered trademark and is known throughout the world. via
How do you use a punch Lok?
To use the 'Punch-Lok'® Pre-Formed Clamp, simply insert the hose and fitting into the clamp, slide the P-1000 Tool up the clamp 'tail' to the Lok, tighten the clamp using the ball ended handle, 'Punch' the 'Lok' using a hammer onthe punch head and then lift the tool over the Lok to snap off the surplus tail. via
