No matter what you current situation might be, you might find yourself in need of stainless hose clamps. Here are a few of the most important facts that you need to know before you make any purchases or do any repair work in your home.
1. Hose clamps or hose clips are devices which are used to attach and seal a hose onto a fitting such as a barb or nipple.
2. Hose clamps are typically limited to moderate pressures, such as those found in automotive and home applications. At high pressures, especially with large hose clamps, the clamp would have to be unwieldy to be able to withstand the forces expanding it without allowing the hose to slide off the barb or a leak to form. For these high pressure applications, compression fittings, thick crimp fittings, or other designs are normally used.
3. Did you know that hose clamps are frequently used for things other than their intended use, and are often used as a more permanent version of duct tape wherever a tightening band around something would be useful.
