Oetiker Clamp Set – Tool and Clamps

71lya8AKlSL._SL1280_

I use stainless steel Oetiker Stepless clamps for most gas and beer applications.  I like the fact that they are… stainless steel, stepless (keep reading) and the fact that they stay tight (keep reading).  These clamps are designed so that there are no steps (gaps) on the inside.  That reduces the possibility that tubing will be torn or damaged.  These are single use clamps.  The upside of that is… Oetiker Stepless clamps will not loosen over time.  When they’re tight, they’re tight.  I really like that for kegerator applications because… A: I don’t like to empty CO2 tanks for no good reason and B: I don’t like standing beer in my kegerator.

This set includes the tool along with a selection.

You get…

  • (10) 13.3 Clamps for attaching Standard 3/16ID X 7/16 OD
  • (10) 15.7 Clamps for attaching Standard 5/16 ID X 9/16 OD
  • (10) 17.0 Clamps for attaching Standard 5/16ID X 9/16 OD
