Clutch Clamps Clutch Clamps (also known as constant tension hose clamps) solve a host of hose, tube, shaft, or stud assembly problems. These fasteners are self-retained and simply installed with ordinary pliers. When the extended fingers on the clamp are compressed, its diameter expands for positioning on the hose, tube, or shaft. When released, the clamp locks, distributing firm pressure a full 360 degrees around the clamp's circumference. Once applied, live spring tension prevents loosening or movement of the fastener due to vibration.
Several variations in fastener design and sizes are available with the same clutch-action principle. Some have flared ends, equally spaced end legs( to absorb shock and provide cushioned seating), barbs for greater retention on plastic, etc. Clutch clamp applications are unlimited.
