Glarks 120Pcs 7-21mm 304 Stainless Steel Single Ear stepless Hose Clamps Assortment Kit


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

  • High Precision Single Ear Stepless Hose Clamps
  • Material: 304 Stainless Steel, Corrosion-Resistant , Will Not Rust For Long-Term Use
  • Package Include: 7-21mm 7 Kind Of Size 120pcs Total In A Clear Box, Easy To Store
  • 360 ° Stepless Design – There Is No Protrusion And Gap In The Inner, Narrowband Design Providing A More Concentrated Sealing Pressure

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.

I’m a big fan of Oetiker style clamps, especially in my kegerator.  See: Oetiker Stepless Clamps for Kegerator Gas and Beer Lines.

  • I use stainless steel Oetiker-style stepless clamps for most gas and beer applications.  I like the fact that they are, generally… stainless steel, stepless and the fact that they stay tight and will not loosen over time.
  • 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-style 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.
  • A sizing note – Oetiker-style Stepless clamp sizes generally refer to the largest diameter in mm.  So a size 13.3 means that the Oetiker Stepless clamp is 13.3 millimeters (about .52″) in diameter uncrimped.
