The Dixon LS series stainless steel quick release clamp has a stainless steel band and housing, a zinc-plated steel screw, and a quick release mechanism. A worm gear mechanism adjusts the clamp’s diameter to precisely apply sealing pressure. The 1/2" band and housing are made of stainless steel that conforms to the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) 301 standard and provides resistance to corrosion, wear, and fatigue. The slotted, 5/16” hex-head screw allows installation using a blade screwdriver, nut driver, or socket wrench. The screw is made of hardened carbon steel that is zinc-plated for resistance to rust. The screw swivels to lock the clamp or disengage it for quick release. The clamp is recommended for maximum torque of 30 inch-pounds.
Hose clamps attach hoses to fittings to prevent flow leakage. They come in a variety of designs and distribute uniform pressure over the circumference of hoses to bind them to fittings. Hose clamps are suitable for a large number of industries, and commonly used in industrial, electronic, and automotive applications.
