Hose clamps

I really need to replace some past their best hose clamps they are the spring type as standard rather than jubilee, canít seem to find stainless spring clamps? Are jubilee as good? Anyone recommend a resasble price supplier of quality stainless jubilee clamps? This is the type current in use https://www.clipsandfasteners.com/Co...amps-s/670.htm

The oem ones are eye watering and donít seem to last very well having a nightmare with the parts guide but one I figure out what size I need iíll Order a big pack of 20 in each size.

For smaller hoses I use stainless Oetiker clips. Anything larger I use stainless ďsuper clampĒ type, Both can be sourced from your local hose supplier or engineers merchants.

+1 for the Supra stainless clamps. I use them for everything.

Likewise, I use the Mikalor Supra ones on all the really important hoses, I think they are far better and stronger than the usual Jubilee clamps.

Some of my smaller ones are worm drive Jubilees (https://www.westfieldfasteners.co.uk...inless-W5.html), but I don't trust them much, and they seem more prone to seizing/slipping. If you do use that style, be wary that some makes are far better than others - I've seen some incredibly bad cheap copies that barely clamp anything!

I have a selection box of the 2 ear stainless clamps. Theres a very nice tool by Knippex to crimp them on. Make sure the o clamp is as close as fit as possible. They are "fit and forget" and kind the tubing also. Nik
