ClampTite. I bought this tool at a boat show back in the 90s. I've used it many times over the years and it has to be one of my favorite tools. Yesterday I used it to repair my air pump, so I thought I would show you how sweet of a job it does. If I would have used a standard hose clamp it would have been bulky and possibly in the way of closing the lever on the chuck.
You can buy them on Amazon for $30 plus safety wire.
I found this video on YouTube to demonstrate its use.

That's awesome. I have a hose repair on my 'to do' list. I'll have to get one of those!
Wow! Thanks for the info. I should have had one of those years ago. You can get them in Canada from Lee Valley Tools. https://www.google.ca/url?sa=t&rct=j...29391328,d.eWE

I machined one of those for myself about eight years ago. Lost it somehow when I moved to Hawaii.
It looks pretty interesting. My only concern would be how well the bend at the end holds up over time, in an environment with a lot of vibration. Have any of you had experience with that?
I'm pretty happy with the regular generic clamps, especially for easy on and off. But I could see having a small spool of wire and that tool in your bag saving your (or others) day for emergency repairs. Never saw this before but I'm going to order one. Thanks for posting.
I like it. Only 11 left on amazon. They need to pay you a commission.

I've had mine for years too and use it regularly.
It is ideal for many things but not for all things of course.
I have never had one slip or break.
I like to use it anywhere obvious for the clean look.
Much nicer than a hose clamp.
I used them on the engine end of the oil cooler lines on my street tracker:
