These zinc plated carbon steel Tiger Clamps are used for spiral hoses and designed specifically for PVC suction hoses with a spiral helix where traditional flat banding clamps do not seal well.
- Zinc plated carbon steel
- Two or more clamps are suggested for 3" ID and larger hoses
- Both hex nuts should be tightened equally to prevent leakage
- Caution: proper evaluation of holding power for each clamp must be determined for each individual application
- Designed to fit most Kuriyama Tigerflex hoses, clockwise clamps designed to fit Tigerflex TR1 and TR2-series hoses
Clockwise vs. Counter Clockwise
To determine which style clamp is needed for your hose look at the end of the hose; if the helix spirals in a clockwise direction away from you (along the hose), a clockwise clamp is needed. If the helix spirals in a counterclockwise direction away from you, a counterclockwise clamp is needed.
