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!

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.

Very Macgyver!

I've had mine for years too and use it regularly. :cool:

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:

The perfect application and definitely strong enough to secure the oil lines. Excellent job Jaglite.

I want this tool, but will it hold garden hose pressure? Being a very cheap person (curmudgeon), I repair garden hose all the time, rather than buy new. And which model is most recommended?
