The 9/16-inch wide band and the screw assembly of this value-priced clamp are both stainless steel. This is an "American-style" clamp where the grooves in the band are perforated completely through the band. This grade clamp is widely used in automotive hose clamping applications, although not usually seen in all stainless steel. Popularized in diving for use with hogarthian (aka DIR) stage strap assemblies, when using these inexpensive automotive hose clamps for securing cylinder stage straps you must avoid using the strap as a carry handle otherwise properly tightened clamps will eventually move and the strap will loosen. Over-tightening the clamps in an attempt to prevent the strap from loosening will damage the clamp by either breaking the grooves or stripping the screw.
- The small size clamps are for AL40
- The large-size clamps are for LP85, AL72, AL80, and HP100.
