70 Piece Stainless Steel Single Ear Clamp Assortment

Hilitchi 70pcs Stainless Steel Single Ear Hose Clamps Kit

Hilitchi 70pcs Stainless Steel Single Ear Hose Clamps Kit


From the product description, check product page for current description, price and availability:

  • High-quality 304 stainless steel, corrosion-resistant
  • Smooth inner circumference for 360 degree uniform seal
  • Package quantity: 70pcs (each 10pcs), Organized within a convenient plastic storage case
  • Scope of 1/4” ~ 13/16” or 7mm-21mm
  • Please note – the size of the clamp denotes the inner dimension (id) of the clamp

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.
