Pretty cool. Might try them myself.

I usually run fuel injection steel hose clamps from napa on every thing.

NAPA sell spring loaded hose clamps, I use them on hydraulic return lines on my loader tractor, so they keep tension in cold weather. A quick google search got me to this so you can see what they look like.

They were designed for a specific application. That is the nominal size, they are adjustable from that size. They are a high quality clamp unlike the cheap "universal" clamp you buy from a chain store.

But it's a device that is designed to compress a material to seal on another material. I assume this is to fit over a 15/16" hose giving 1/128" of clearance. But why not 31/32" or 61/64"?

All oetiker clamps are measured in metric. 121/128 equals a 24 mm clamp. I'm thinking grainger just sells them as standard size.

I was going to post a thread about the same thing last week. On my plow truck I replaced the coolant hose now I've had to tighten up four times. Every time I take the truck out the hose starts dripping coolant because the clamps keep loosening up or stretching. whatever they're doing I don't know but it seems like they are all junk lately.
