What clamps should I use for securing my soft or hard tubing?

Tubing and reinforced hose need to be securely connected to the fittings that it is being used with, particularly when there is pressure involved. We offer two types of clamps for fastening tubing and hose to fittings, Snap Grip and Worm Drive.

Snap grip clamps secure tubing and hose in seconds. They have two rows of teeth to ensure a strong hold and can be easily adjusted for a tighter fit around the tubing. All that is required is a pair of pliers to pinch tight the clamp. Twist action with the pliers removes clamps. They are made of a durable acetal which holds strong and allows them to be removed and reapplied when necessary. These work best for softer tubing and hose.

Worm Drive clamps or screw clamps are installed with a standard screwdriver or ratcheting socket. Tightening the screw pulls a band through a housing, thereby tightening the band around the hose or tubing. Made of Stainless Steel, they resist corrosion. Very easy to tighten and loosen for adjustment or maintenance. These clamps work for soft tubing and harder tubing such as nylon and HDPE.
